Adams students raise $13k for American Heart Association

Adams School participated in our annual Jump Rope For Heart event this year during the whole month of February. Students focused on many styles and aspects of jumping, using a variety of equipment. A health unit was also included during this time relating to an active lifestyle and healthy food choices.

Last year our school collected over $9,200 for the American Heart Association. We set a goal of raising $5,600 this year. After one months time and a lot of hard work, our students raised over $13,000. There were approximately 155 participants in grades 1-2.

Help Fergus Falls Public Schools compete for a grant of up to $25,000

America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, gives rural public school districts the opportunity to compete for a grant of up to $25,000 to help fund science and math programs. Eligible farmers can nominate local public school districts for a grant. Please ask all of the local farmers you know to nominate our school today!

For the fourth consecutive year, America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education will award
$2.3 million to enhance math and science education in rural communities in 2015. Grant
applications will be judged based on the merit of the application, need and community
support. Community support is affected by the number of farmers we have nominate our
school district and this can strengthen our application.

If Fergus Falls Public Schools wins, we plan on using our grant money to purchase technology for the STEM Academy. But first, we have to be nominated. The deadline for farmer nominations is April 1, 2015. So start spreading the word about this important
opportunity today!
