Sidney Frohman Foundation Sponsors 2013 Hayes Center Visit for Sandusky City Schools 4th Graders
Our students need to experience history hands-on. The Hayes Center allowed them to travel back in time which deepens their understanding."
Throughout November 2013 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 Center's Curriculum Connections educational program. The Sidney Frohman Foundation is one of six original Curriculum Connections sponsors. Students, teachers, and the Hayes Presidential Center were pleased that the Sidney Frohman Foundation chose to sponsor students' onsite visit again in 2013!
Curriculum Connections allows teachers and students to better connect with our nations past, Ohios history, and our local history while addressing Ohios 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 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. 226 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
