A2Z Personnel and 107.9 the Drive would like to announce that Maralee Johnson, of Stevensville Elementary, is the winner of April’s We Support Our Schools Grant. Mrs. Johnson would like to expand her classroom library with books that provide not only a rich literary experience, but that also address the social emotional literacy needs of young children. With students from diverse backgrounds and experiences, having great books that assist with processing through the varied emotions children experience while at home and at school are critical for a cohesive classroom. Maralee would like to purchase books that can be used to safely introduce and discuss social situations, emotions and self-regulation, friendship, and a variety of other topics that lead to healthier and more positive experiences for her students at school and in their communities.
We are happy to award the April Grant to Ms. Johnson for the expansion of her classroom library and would like to express our appreciation for her and for all teachers that go above and beyond for their students.
