Joseph Schmidt, Teacher Leader - Social Studies, jjschmidt@madison.k12.wi.us

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:

1st Grade - Mendota Elementary

2nd/3rd Grade - Glendale Elementary

2nd/3rd Grade DLI - Glendale Elementary

3rd Grade - Mendota Elementary

4th Grade - Emerson Elementary

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.

This is the second 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.
