The "100% for Kids Credit Union Education Foundation" recently presented a check for nearly two thousand dollars to Mrs. Hearty at Hayden Peak Elementary in Jordan District.
Hearty, a third grade teacher, applied for the grant seeking funding to help the school implement an integrated science/social studies program into the language arts program.
Hearty says this project will enrich the third grade standard curriculum, enhance student learning and benefit all students by teaching science and social studies through an integrated program. She says research has proven that this is the way that students will learn new concepts and make real world connections.
100% For Kids Credit Union Foundation seeks support from Utah's Credit Unions, credit union members and anyone committed to improving education. The Foundation was formed in late 2002 and has since funded over five million dollars in grants throughout Utah. The Foundation has contributed to all 40 of Utah's school districts. All of the funds donated go directly to teachers for use in their classroom.
