For Immediate Release: The Cedarburg Education Foundation (CEF) has awarded $2,500 for the Riveredge Scientist in Residence grant submitted by Webster Middle School Science Teacher, Ms. Jodi Rogahn. The Scientist in Residence is an innovative program which forms a partnership between a school and the nature center by placing a Riveredge Nature Center educator alongside teachers to serve as a resource, mentor, and support system. The residence, which will happen in the 2019-2020 school year, helps meet needs defined by the district and builds a culture of outdoor learning that can be incorporated in day-to-day curriculum across subject areas for CSD students from 4K through 12th grade.
The CEF is proud to provide a funding source to enhance teaching methods not accounted for in the Cedarburg School District budget. Please remember that funding of grants is possible through the fundraising efforts of the CEF. The CEF’s upcoming fundraising events for 2019 will be our Fall Gala on November 9th, 2019.
