Two Darden Teachers Receive grants from the Education Foundation!  
Darden PC is proud to announce that Mrs. Lori Hendricks and Mrs. Deb Blower were recently awarded teacher grants from the South Bend Education Foundation.  Mrs. Hendricks was awarded $1500 to purchase the projector that is needed for an Interactive Whiteboard in her classroom.  This award helps Darden continue to upgrade the instructional technology available to our teachers and students in the classroom and will help bring 21st Century learning into her Life Skills classroom.  The remaining funds for the whiteboard have been provided by other fundraising efforts and the Darden PTO.  Mrs. Blower, 2nd grade teacher, was awarded $1,132 to develop a Tower Garden to be used for by all students for hands-on learning about gardens, plants, life cycles as well as critical thinking, teamwork, and responsibility.  As you can see Darden PC has teachers that are committed to bringing awesome learning opportunities to our students!  Kudos to Mrs. Hendricks and Mrs. Blower who will be recognized at the Great Friends of School Breakfast on April 27.  Many thanks to the SB Education Foundation for supporting our teachers and students.  You can purchase tickets to the breakfast and get involved in supporting the foundation at www.edfo.org.
