As schools around the state find themselves having to tighten their budgets, educators at both the Bizzell Academy and Navasota High School are giving thanks to the Navasota Education Foundation today for gifting them a total of $12,000 in new funding.
Navasota Independent School District’s Bill Murray reports the foundation passed out four checks Tuesday February 9th; three went to Bizzell, and one to the high school.
Because of the new funding, Murry tells Navasota News Bizzell students will be seeing more reading material, have access to ipads, and also a chance to get some hands-on business experience by operating a print shop.
And at rattler high he continues, a pair of teachers teamed up to give students a new way to work on their math and english skills by getting them to program computers games and write the story.
Murry says groups like the foundation give students a chance at learning what they need to know in a new and interesting way. And it also gives teachers another resource to dip into, without having to further drain their already all-too lean school budget.
