Three projects proposed by Redbank Valley School District employees were awarded this year.

Tammi Starcher, a Redbank kindergarten teacher, proposed a sensory pathway ($200.00) for the hallway from the playground. The project enhances the students’ sensory experience and adds kinesthetic educational value.

Deven Laird, a Redbank science teacher, proposed a pollinators’ garden ($250.00) on school property. The garden will enhance environmental education for their students and bring science alive.

A third proposed project was funded through CCPASR member donations.

Dr. Joe Harmon, a Redbank social studies teacher, proposed an expansion of their Holocaust library ($242.00) for their history department. The books will present students with personal stories provided by survivors and enhance their understanding of history.
