Executive Director Dr. Joni Swanson wrote: “Congratulations, Karen, on obtaining more grants for our MVSD! Very exciting for the HS Math Department to have access to this new piece of tech for instructional purposes-“

Superintendent Dr. Carl Bruner wrote: “Congratulations on the successful STEM grant application!  Our Science and Math teachers at MVHS (and our middle schools) have been largely lacking access to the dollars they truly need to support inclusion of powerful technologies in their classrooms.  Your support here marks a big step forward.”

9th Grade Math Teacher: “This is wonderful news!  Thank you, UW RISE UP 3”.

9th Grade Science Teacher, Re: Student to Student Mentorship: ”Thank you so much.”

Thank you all for supporting the MV STEM proposals and making it happen for our 9th graders.
