Kindergarten teacher Barbara White was presented with a $1,000 check for Glendale Acres
Elementary School on August 12, 2019, by Georgia Popp from the North Carolina Chapter of the
Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA). The $1,000 was
awarded for a STEM Teaching Tool Program for 2019. Glendale Acres School will be
purchasing Family Engagement STEM packs and Learn to Code file folder games to utilize with
the students. The Family Engagement STEM packs can also be used during parent involvement
events at the school. The Glendale Acres Elementary School staff, students, and family
members are very grateful and excited! The grant money will truly be beneficial for the school,
especially due to the new implementation of a Makerspace room as well as Learning to Code
instruction taking place in the Computer Lab.
