Teachers win grants for eighth grade trip and personal finance class
Many of our teachers take it upon themselves to identify and apply for extra funding to make extra special things possible for their students. Mr. Cormier and Mr. Hart from the middle and high school, respectively, are no exception.
Liberty Middle School teacher Mr. Ryan Cormier is slated to receive $700 from Target to go towards a field trip fund to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City with 50 eighth graders. Because the museum allows a maximum group of 50 students, Mr. Cormier is not able to bring the entire eighth grade. He will hold a lottery in the early spring; students will be selected at random to attend the trip to New York City.
Liberty High School teacher Mr. Dan Hart is also slated to receive $700 from the KeyBank Hudson Valley Contributions Committee. The monies will go toward purchasing materials in Mr. Hart’s personal finance classes. Mr. Harts plans to use the money for material that will help him teach students about loans, credit and how to properly maintain a checking account.
