On November 16, 2017, the MISD Education Foundation made the rounds with its Fall Grant Patrol. Recipients were surprised with giant checks, huge, shiny balloons, and much cheering and applause!
Willie Brown was one of the first stops on Day 1 of the MISD Grant Patrol's delivery schedule. Fourth grade teacher Kristen Johnson, in collaboration with MISD Educational Technology's Ashley Coffman and Brittany Jeanes, earned recognition for "Game On with Bloxels". An award in the amount of $3,898.55 will go toward the purchase of Bloxels and Amazon Fire tablets, so that Willie Brown students can create their own video games.
Thanks go to the MISD Education Foundation and Perdue, Brandon, Fielder, Collins & Mott LLP for funding opportunities for our students!
