THE TOLEDO COMMUNITY FOUNDATION FUNDS EDUCATIONAL MUSEUM EXPERIENCE FOR TOLEDO PUBLIC SCHOOL STUDENTS

tps

4th grade students from Toledo Public Schools' Whittier Elementary visited the Hayes Home and Hayes Museum for the first time this fall. Their participation in the firsthand learning experience was made possible by The Toledo Community Foundation. The Toledo Community Foundation sponsorship allowed students to take part in the Hayes Center's recently designed Curriculum Connections educational program.

In 2013, 4th grade students from other TPS elementary schools will also have the opportunity to participate, thanks to funding by the Toledo Community Foundation.

Developed by the Hayes Presidential Center staff, Curriculum Connections is a three-part program, providing a "classroom satellite" experience by incorporating Ohio's Social Studies Academic Content Standards into a pair of DVD resources given to teachers for classroom use before and after students' onsite visit.

Toledo Community Foundation Curriculum Connections Sponsor

In the words of one teacher: "Toledo Community Foundation's sponsorship of the Curriculum Connections program gave us a chance to lift history from the pages of the book for our students!"

The program finds sponsors, like The Toledo Community Foundation that are willing to cover admission and/or transportation costs for school children to visit the Hayes Presidential Center.

Hayes Presidential Center 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. 26 or email her at kboukissen@rbhayes.org.
