The Grant Project!


The Grant Project!
By Cameron

We have very generously been donated $6000 to our school and it is up to the grade 6 classes to decide what to do with it! We are working on developing ideas that will benefit our community the most.

We asked two people from all classes in the school on what they what for the town with a sheet of paper with questions. After we did survey we calculated up all the data onto one big chart.
After that each group started a planner of what they wanted to see in the town that could be built in our time frame and would cost 6,000 dollars or less. Then there will be a MOCK (fake) town council meeting on May 11th where all groups will present their idea to the council and then the council will decide on one. We are lucky enough to have the (real) Mayor Sorenson help to run our meeting.


This task has been both hard and easy. It depends a lot on if you are willing to work with the people in your group, or if your friends with someone in your group, or if you don't like one person in your group very much. Sometimes you might have two different ideas but they don’t work together. If this happens, you can always find another one.
