Matoska Elementary - 1st Graders Learning to Code

Elementary school isn’t what it used to be. First grade students in Christina Hayden’s Matoska International Elementary School classroom are learning coding thanks to a WBLAEF grant.

By the end of the school year the students were using the Osmo Coding Technology to control Awbie, a playful character who loves strawberries.  Each coding command directs Awbie on an adventure, teaching the students logic and problem-solving skills.

“The students are so excited and motivated with their learning through this program. I just feel so proud to have received funding from such a wonderful Foundation. Thank you again for helping me make this grant happen for my students.  You rock!”  said Christina Hayden.

From helping to support young minds to unsealing college dreams for students hungry for knowledge, the Foundation’s mission helps the District provide excellence in education for all students.

The Foundation’s success is sustained by generous donors like you.  Let your dollars grant the dreams of our educators and future leaders of America.
