    Congratulations to the 2020 Oxnard Education Foundation grant recipients recognized during an awards gala held on Saturday, February 8. Twenty-three grant proposals were submitted and a total of $10,000 is available to fill grant requests that benefit Oxnard School District teachers and schools. Congratulations to the following individuals:

    • Terry Lopez – Brekke School – Grades TK-5 for a Social Emotional Library of books that will support the district’s initiative to provide Social Emotional Learning (SEL) for students.  More SEL books are needed in the Media Center to meet the needs of the students.  These books focus on compassion, kindness, empathy and how to deal with bullying and grief.

     

    • Jessica Orozco – Driffill School (Grades 7 & 8) for a Ram Gardening Club that will work on growing edible foods, but will also grow plants that will help the environment (i.e. pollinators such as butterflies, bees and hummingbirds).  A garden is also a healthy activity that students can do together, building new relationships and a stronger community.

     

    • Greg Brisbine – RJ Frank Academy of Marine Science and Engineering (Grades 6-8) for History Comes Alive for English Learners to provide English learner students in the Newcomer Academy with the tools to create high-quality video projects to support their continuing development of oracy and literacy skills.

     

    • Lindsey Pompey – Fremont Academy of Environmental Science and Innovative Design (Grades 6-8) for Teach Beyond the Four Walls:  College and Career Exploration with Google Expeditions to allow students to be able to use virtual reality as a way of deepening their understanding of college and careers. Students will use the free Google Expeditions app to go on virtual college campus visits and to learn about different careers from the experts at their places of work using virtual reality goggles.

     

    • Shannon Todd– Fremont Academy of Environmental Science and Innovative Design (Grades 6-8) Understanding Data and the World through Artistic Expression to increase student understanding of collecting and representing data through creating art on postcards that will be sent to another class in order to analyze and discuss.

     

    • Anna Cash –  Harrington School (Grade 1 Dual Language Immersion) for Biliteracy through AR reading with 1st Grade DLI students for first-grade Dual Language Immersion students to develop high levels of biliteracy through more access to daily AR Bilingual books to help promote literacy.

     

    • Maria Kirk – Kamala School (Grades K-5) for Exploring Basic Math Facts Through Children’s Literature to connect and explore basic math facts with real world experiences found in children’s literature while providing investigations to attach meaning to the facts.

     

    • Laura Chua – Lemonwood School (Grades 6-8) for Expand the Robotics Program to grow the robotics program using additional parts that will allow students to build more complex robots with greater maneuverability and object manipulation which will result in students being able to contend with other schools in local and regional competitions.

     

    • Heather Ranck – Lemonwood School (Grades 6-8) for Painting with the Masters to create an appreciation for past and present artists who have influenced the art community.  By focusing on famous artists, past and present, an environment can be created from which the students can learn and create works of art inspired by the artists who are studied.

     

    • Michael Armstrong – McKinna  School (Grades 4-6 but can be expanded) for a Green Screen in order to enhance student presentations in an engaging and meaningful way.  This will help students in writing reports, creating presentations, speaking in public and learning technology skills.

     

    • Heidi Gose – McKinna  School (Grades K-5) for Music to Enrich the Heart and Soul to provide students an opportunity to learn how to play musical instruments while learning the importance of depending upon each other to complete a song.
