    Lee’s Summit West students in Mrs. Stacie Myers IB Physiology class and Wesley Wiskur’s Technology Education Association of Missouri (T.E.A.M.) Club joined together to help support some of our less fortunate men and women who have served us in uniform and that for many reasons have become displaced, homeless and living without basic health items each day. These students began a campaign to collect health and comfort items such as toothpaste, brushes, combs, soap, female hygiene products, shampoo and more throughout the second semester. They separated and placed $3500 of products into baggies, creating hygiene kits designed for men and women. The students also took the time to hand write personal notes and place them into each of the care packages thanking and expressing their gratitude for their service. The students wrote over 100 thank you notes to our displaced veterans. The care packages were then delivered to the local Veterans Community Project in Kansas City (VCP-KC). This organization helps our displaced veterans. The Veterans Community Project is responsible for many programs such as building the Tiny Home Community and providing assistance to help these brave men and women with necessities.

    Meadow Lane Elementary has earned a $212,102 Kauffman Foundation grant to support implementation of project based learning and innovative practices. This announcement comes after a competitive grant application process. The grant aims to transform instructional methods at Meadow Lane Elementary. In collaboration with the Comprehensive Facilities Master Plan (CFMP) process and our future-ready initiatives, Meadow Lane Elementary sought out this opportunity to integrate a SMART (where Science and Math meet Art) lab steeped in project-based learning and hands-on experience. Meadow Lane Elementary will be participating in professional development, training and coaching to help integrate the project based approach. Part of their collaboration will be with the Buck Institute for Education, the gold standard in project-based learning professional development. Wendy Guillies, President and CEO of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, said, “The Foundation champions bold ideas to change futures because, like our founder Ewing Kauffman, we believe every person should have the opportunity to be uncommon and take risks to achieve their goals. We first listen to the communities we serve, seek to understand the problems and dream big with partners like you to build innovative programs that drive results.”
