Lowes Fuels Minds & Bodies

Lowes Grant

Discovery Elementary received a Lowes “Toolbox for Education” grant and students are the real winners. The $5,000 award will be used to encourage reading while keeping minds and bodies active. Librarian Matthew King incorporated physical activity, literacy and technology in the grant he submitted last fall. 

Monies will purchase Playaway devices and a 3D printer. Playaway is a portable device pre-loaded audio books. According to King, students will activate mind and body with the walk and listen approach to literacy. After a student completes the book, each will select a key component to the story to design & print.

Lowe's Charitable and Educational Foundation helps schools with improvement projects and initiatives that strengthen communities.
