ONALASKA HIGH SCHOOL RECEIVES $5,000 GRANT
Lowe’s Donates Money for the Carlisle Lake Community Fitness Project by the High School STEM Class
Onalaska High School has received a $5,000 Lowe’s Toolbox for Education grant for the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) class to design, build, and install interpretive health and wellness stations around Carlisle Lake.
We are thrilled to announce that Lowe’s has awarded Onalaska High School funding for the Carlisle Lake Community Fitness Project. Our grant application was based on the goal of improving the health and wellness of the school and community while teaching students how to design and build fitness stations. We look forward to sharing the Carlisle Lake Community Fitness Project with the Onalaska community.
Next year Onalaska High School will have a new two-period class taught by three teachers for students to learn about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Every lesson learned in the class will be utilized to complete real projects. The Lowe’s Toolbox for Education grant will be used to pay for the materials needed for students in the STEM class to design, build and install health and wellness stations around Carlisle Lake. These health and wellness stations will consist of workout equipment and educational signs on how to use the equipment and to be healthy in general. The project is scheduled to be completed at the end of the 2015/2016 school year.
“Onalaska High School greatly appreciates the grant received from Lowe’s. With this support our STEM class will now have the opportunity partner with the local alliance in building fitness stations around Carlisle Lake. The entire Onalaska community will benefit from Lowe’s generous grant.” said Onalaska High School’s principal, Richard Rasanen.
All K-12 public schools in the United States are eligible for the Toolbox for Education program. More information is available at www.ToolboxforEducation.com.
