NPMS teacher awarded grant to enhance curriculum
Excellent ideas for classroom activities have not gone unnoticed by the local McDonald’s restaurants. For 18 years, McDonald’s Restaurants of Central Indiana has offered MAC Grants to help teachers Make Activities Count for their students.
This year, North Putnam Middle School teacher Alyssa Chew has been awarded a $500 grant through the 2017 McDonald’s Restaurants of Central Indiana MAC Grants program.
Chew will use the grant to give students the opportunity to research and learn about historic castles. From their research, the students will create a scale model of the castles.
MAC Grants is an ongoing program that offers financial support to help teachers Make Activities Count for their students. Because lessons often become more meaningful when demonstrated with hands-on experiences, McDonald’s Restaurants of Central Indiana supports activities that supplement regular classroom curriculum.
The MAC Grants program provides funding to teachers for interesting and educational projects.
