Engineering Day ($250)
Recently MEF helped underwrite the costs of Engineering Day at Masco. Engineers from 16 local companies visited Masco and spoke to all of the juniors about potential careers in Engineering. Many thanks to Mrs. Reyes for organizing. Has your child’s teacher inspired them with a fun learning experience? Thank them with a Teacher Recognition Award from MEF. All proceeds fund grants to teachers for educational initiatives like this.
Butterfly Garden ($1000)
We love when an educational initiative crosses curricula and cultures! With MEF’s support, the Middle School Spanish teachers are creating a Monarch Butterfly Way Station to help the endangered Monarch butterfly. Students will study the butterflies’ migration pattern; and it ties into their studies of the Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations. If you would like to support these kinds of learning initiatives, purchase a Recognition Award for your Favorite teacher, or simply make a donation on our Teacher Recognition Awards website page.
DECA Competition Trip ($2000)
This was the first year that Masco participated in the 70-year-old Distributive Education Clubs of America program. And in their first year, four students qualified to compete at the national competition! MEF made sure those students were able to travel to Anaheim and represent Masco proudly. What a great educational experience!
Making Sense of Motion Graphs ($800)
MEF helped the 9th Grade Applying Algebra to Physics teachers procure a Motion Encoder Cart and Track System to help students match motion data to motion graphs, and apply what they’ve learned to Newton’s Laws. Thanks to Ms. Rowett and Mr. Svendsen for thinking of this. If your child has a teacher who goes the extra mile, consider thanking them with a Recognition Certificate from MEF – all proceeds support initiatives like this.
