Dear VPEF,

As we come to the end of our school year I want to extend a Thank You to you. With your grant I was truly able to positively affect the achievement gap that exists between my English language learners and native English speakers. My students were able to experience hands on learning that provide authentic experiences that improved their academic vocabulary and writing skills. From learning, and explaining, how roller coasters work using Hot Wheels tracks and building roller coasters to successfully completing a PBL garden project from design to implementation. (This garden is available for viewing in the upper grade hallway should you wish to visit.)

Furthermore, we were able to hold our first ever photo gallery following a lesson on Dorthea Lange. Students took photos, put them on display, and then were asked to explain their photos and captions at a showing, while many classes came through the "gallery."
Your funding provided and augmented hand on learning.
This year, my students were engaged and glad to be part of the ELD program here at Padan.

Again, thank you for your support and investing in my program.

Jane Gallagher
