The CB Cares Education Foundation has awarded an Innovative Learning grant of $2,922 to Central Bucks West High School teacher Mark Hayden for the purchase of a large scale digital printer.
CB Cares Educational Foundation School and Community Outreach Director Nancy Santacecilia presented a check at the Sept. 24 meeting of the Central Bucks School Board.
Hayden explained that the device will support CB science fair students throughout the district, who will use the machine to create sophisticated display boards of their projects for judging. Students who participate in the Central Bucks Biotech Partnership Program were on hand to help him accept the donation.
“As you can see Mark Hayden is a conduit and a bedrock for the science program in the Central Bucks School District,” Santacecilia said.
“We are privileged to partner with visionary educators such as Mark Hayden. Hayden who understands the true benefits of innovative learning approaches through hands-on experiences. This workshop and programs like it are what the Innovative Learning grants are meant to provide for the students in our community.”
The school board at its Sept. 10 meeting recognized the efforts of the district’s facilities and energy management operations summer floor crew - David Gieringer, Paul Tosti, Michael Fetz, Marc Donello, Ken Lynch, and Allen Charles - who worked as a team to plan for and refinish 12 wood gym floors and 13 stages throughout the district over the summer months.
“Thank you for your fantastic work this summer,” Superintendent John Kopicki said. “The floors look incredible.”
