Michelle Simpson was given $4,500 to purchase Imagination Playground blocks, an innovative playground system that encourages movement, social development, and enhanced learning while at play. “The blocks encourage students to continue their learning outside of the classroom- budding mathematicians, engineers, inventors, architects, and community leaders are able to exercise their skills without boundaries,” Simpson said.

Woodman Park pre-school teacher, Calla LaChance, was awarded $2,500 to purchase augmentative and alternative communication tools to aide children who are unable to communicate verbally or have limited verbal output.
