Additional students served as assistant directors and technical assistants in sound and lighting. Also, The Missoula Children's Theater Group conducted classroom workshops at Hathaway during school hours. This project provided a unique enrichment opportunity for students K through 5, as well as benefit the community by staging a theater production for the entire community to enjoy.
Math Around the Clock - Hathaway Elementary
Hathaway Elementary as received a funding for a "Math Around the Clock" project. This project involves: 1) holding an after school "Math Academy" focusing on the use of math manipulatives to construct models and solve problems, 2) holding a parent information night to explore the math concepts used in the classroom, and 3) creating a school-to-home link by sending home math games weekly for students to play with parents. The WSF funds were used to buy the home math games. These games support the essential learning requirements in mathematics for each grade level in a fun way involving parents. The expected outcome will be to strengthen the understanding of the math concepts, which will result in accelerated new learning in the classroom.
On-line Curriculum Pilot - Washougal High School
An award was made to Washougal High School to pilot a project using an on-line curriculum format to the Introduction to Physical Science classes. The on-line curriculum was used during classroom time as the centerpiece of an interactive lecture/discussion. Students outside the classroom can also access it whenever needed. This on-line curriculum will broaden and deepen the students' academic experience using technology and the most up-to-date science content available. The WSF Allocations Committee felt it was important to pilot this innovative approach to classroom curriculum, which, if successful could be used to enhance and expand the educational environment in other Washougal School District locations.
