PPG Grants

HCES is proud to announce that we applied and earned a couple of PPG Grants!  5th grade earned a grant for the “Designing Parachutes” Engineering in Elementary kit and materials. This kit contains highly engaging, hands on activities to aid students in learning about aeronautical engineering and the parameters needed to design as well as conduct their own parachute experiment. This kit is directly aligned with our the Next Generation Science Standards.
Our school also received a PPG grant to purchase much needed science materials to help us transition into the newly adopted science standards. The materials include balances, graduated cylinders, magnets and other science center items. These materials will be available for use by any of the school’s science teachers during their lessons.
