Congratulations to the recipients of the Social Studies Field Trip Endowment Grant from MMSD from the K-12 Social Studies Field Trip Fund with the Foundation for Madison’s Public Schools. The selection committee is proud to announce that the following schools/grades have been awarded financial assistance for social studies-based field trips this year:
3rd Grade - Chavez Elementary
3rd Grade - Leopold Elementary
3rd Grade - Lincoln Elementary
3rd Grade - Sandburg Elementary
4th Grade - Marquette Elementary
4th Grade - Muir Elementary
7th Grade - Jefferson Middle School
This is the third year of awarding funds from the endowment and even though there were limited funds to disperse, the selection committee felt strongly that these school-based field trips met the criteria set forth in the application process. The benefactor gave preference to field trips that focused on grade-level content and MMSD Social Studies Standards and also emphasized engaging students in an innovative and creative manner that connects students to their local community.
These field trips are supported in part with funds from the K-12 Social Studies Field Trip Fund with the Foundation for Madison’s Public Schools.
