Thanks to a grant from the Thornapple Area Enrichment Foundation, Thornapple Kellogg Lee Elementary second-grade teachers were able to purchase the Reading Street Sleuth for classrooms. Additional funds from the Lee PTO provided supportive materials as well.
In celebration of Michigan's 182nd birthday, Lee Elementary third-graders experienced a tasty history lesson and learned some fun facts about the state they call home. From Little Caesars Pizza to Vernors Ginger Ale, Faygo Pop, Kellogg's cereals and much more, students got a taste of Michigan as they explored the state's products and history. They even learned that sometimes, great things come from mistakes.
Lee Elementary students love their new four-square courts and an additional basketball hoop thanks to generous donations by NTA Property Management, the Middleville Lions Club, Lee PTO and a TAEF grant. Students have two new four-square courts and are learning to play the game at recess. They also now have an additional basketball hoop with new cement court to go with the hoop that was relocated making room for the four-square court. Pictured are several students playing the game while Lee Principal Angie Jefferson watches with Lions Club members Jason Bushman (left) and Andrew Beck.
Through the extremely generous support of TK families and the community, a total of $74,329.39 was raised at the 10th annual PTO walk-a-thon event last week.
