Gibsonburg 4th Grade Students Participate in Curriculum Connections Thanks to Croghan Colonial Bank

Croghan Colonial Bank Fremont OhioFor the third year in a row, Croghan Colonial Bank, headquartered in Fremont, Ohio sponsored the participation of Gibsonburg’s Hilfiker 4th grade students in the Hayes Presidential Center’s Curriculum Connections education program. Before their visit, students received a pair of DVDs for classroom use. Prepared by the Hayes Presidential Center staff for pre- and post- visit study, the DVDs give students an opportunity to learn about Ohio’s past – its Native American culture, Lake Erie, the Black Swamp, as well as President Rutherford B. Hayes’ contributions to the state as a three-time governor and U. S. Congressman. Aligned with Ohio’s academic content standards, students also learn about citizenship and Ohio’s geography, transportation and migration patterns.

The Hayes Home Restoration is now complete. The Hilfiker ElementaryGibsonburg students, thanks to Croghan Colonial Bank , were one of the first groups of students to see the changes in the Hayes Home that took place during the restoration. Students saw firsthand how President Hayes and his family actually lived during their years at Spiegel Grove.

Hayes Presidential Center Development Director Kathy Boukissen is seeking additional sponsors for school systems that do not have adequate funding for a visit.
