$1,000 Grant - “Finland Middle School Lady V.I.K.I.N.G.S.” 

Lady V.I.K.I.N.G.S is an organization designed to empower young ladies in the 7th and 8th grade by providing them with the tools and support necessary to display the attributes of Virtue, Integrity, Kindness, Intellect, Nobility, Grace, and Self-Respect on a consistent basis in their school and residential community.  

The Lady V.I.K.I.N.G.S started in the middle of January and concluded in May. The group met twice a month after school and was heavily supported by staff members, a 1:1 ratio. The goal of the group was to instill skills necessary to be productive members of society. These skills included social skills, conflict resolution, and self respect. Data was maintained on the number of disciplinary infractions for each student prior to the group and after being an active member in the group. 

Speakers covered topics such as healthy relationships, College Life at OSU, Overcoming Obstacles, Loving Yourself, and Entrepreneurship.

Third Grade Orinthology Inquiry

Life science taught to elementary school students through an initial inquiry question: How can we attract a variety of birds to our school site? 

An inquiry guide, Bird Sleuth developed by The Cornell Lab of Ornithology gave students the support they needed to design, implement, and share their own investigations. 

Suggested inquiry questions included: Will birds eat more from feeders near trees? Will there be fewer birds at a feeder next to a fake cat? What time of day do American Robins prefer to feed their young? Does temperature affect the number of birds that visit the feeder? 

Funds were used to purchase equipment needed to carry out student research. Findings were shared with the local community through the school newsletter, group presentations and with the broader scientific community through Cornell's Citizen Science Program. State standards of life science and inquiry, and literacy standards through reading of non-fiction text and writing were met. Math is also addressed through data collection and graphing results.

2015-2016 SWCSEF Grant!

BalletMet Performs Sleeping Beauty

Students read and watched Sleeping Beauty before the field trip, so during the performance the students were asked to pay attention to the different scenes to compare and contrast the different renditions.


Several students commented that they had never been to downtown Columbus, so I knew they would be in for a treat. ! As we entered the theater, the excitement turned into pure joy as the majestic theater captured their attention. The ornately decorated walls and ceilings were the focal points as we walked up the stairs to our seats.


Students had many questions and we were lucky enough to schedule a Skype call with BalletMet’s educational director, Ambre Emory-Maier. Ms. Emory-Maier actually was one of two ‘hosts’ who greeted the audience before the performance began and helped explain pantomime to the crowd.

For about twenty minutes, the students fired questions at Ms. Emory-Maier about the behind-the-scenes workers, the dancers, the performance, the connection to other versions of Sleeping Beauty, and ballet in general. I’m sure the call could have lasted much longer because when we said goodbye many students still had questions they wanted answered!
