Tesoro Foundation Grant
In the spring of 2016 Lorna Bath, 4th grade teacher at Northpark Elementary, was awarded $3500 in grant monies from the Tesoro Foundation. Lorna used this funding for the purchase of GPS units and rechargeable batteries to use with 4th grade Northpark students. Students use the units to plot study areas within the Northpark nature area, locate exact study areas, chart animal tracks and mark locations of animal signs, construct maps, learn about map scale, and understand distance. Thanks to the Tesoro Foundation Grant students will continue to learn in these areas using GPS units for many years to come.
