A2Z Personnel and The Drive 107.9 are happy to award Kristine Dandy with the We Support Our Schools grant for February of 2023!
Ms. Dandy is a 4th grade teacher at Daly Elementary School in Hamilton. She is excited to use this grant to purchase more books for the entire 4th grade from the “National Park Mystery Series” by Aaron
Johnson. This book series follows Jake Evans and his two friends on a scavenger hunt through some of America’s most rugged, wild, and beautiful
national parks. Ms. Dandy’s students are currently reading the 1st book of the series, “Mystery in Rocky
Mountain Park”. The next book is “Discovery in Great Sand Dunes National Park”.
Daly’s fourth graders are eager to get to the Yellowstone book because many of them will be going to Yellowstone this spring for a 4-day excursions where they will get to use snowshoes and hopefully see
some of the hints they read about in their new books! Books like these encourage learning about our National treasures and reinforce the importance of exploring many topics to capture young readers imaginations and interest.
Thank you, Kristine and all the teachers who encourage imagination with learning.
