Sidney Frohman Foundation Sponsors 2014 Hayes Visit for 4th Graders from Sandusky City Schools
“Our students need to experience history hands-on. The Hayes Center allowed them to travel back in time which deepens their understanding."
Throughout November 2014, more than 200 4th grade students from five Sandusky City Elementary Schools visited the Hayes Home and Museum. Their visit was made possible by The Sidney Frohman Foundation, who sponsored the students' participation in the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums's Curriculum Connections educational program. The Sidney Frohman Foundation is one of six original Curriculum Connections sponsors. Students, teachers, and the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums were pleased that the Sidney Frohman Foundation chose to sponsor students' onsite visit again in 2014!
Curriculum Connections allows teachers and students to better connect with our nation’s past, Ohio’s history, and our local history while addressing Ohio’s Social Studies and English/Language Arts Academic Standards. The program finds sponsors, like The Sidney Frohman Foundation, that are willing to cover admission and/or transportation costs for school children to visit the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums
Hayes Presidential Library & Museums's Development Director, Kathy Boukissen, is seeking additional sponsors for school systems that do not have adequate funding for a visit. For more information about Curriculum Connections or to donate to the program contact Kathy at 419-332-2081, ext. 226 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
