White Family Charitable Fund of the Tiffin Charitable Foundation Sponsors Calvert Catholic
In April 2014 students from Calvert Catholic visited the Hayes Presidential Center as part of the centers Curriculum Connections program. The White Family Charitable Fund of the Tiffin Charitable Foundation made their visit to the center possible. Teachers from Calvert Catholic said their students were excited and couldnt wait to go on their field trip. Students wrote thank you notes to their sponsor, The White Family Charitable Fund of the Tiffin Charitable Foundation, to show their appreciation for their visit to the Hayes Center.
Designed as a three-part "satellite classroom" experience, Curriculum Connections provides each teacher with two educational DVD resources for classroom pre and post visit activities. Created by the Hayes Center staff, the fully-narrated DVDs complement the learning experience of students onsite visit. Exploring Ohio's Past : A Visit to the Hayes Presidential Center features the Hayes Center's original documents, photographs, artifacts, and the physical environment of Spiegel Grove. Fully aligned with Ohio s Academic Content Standards, Curriculum Connections also encourages students critical thinking skills and creativity through its How Can We Learn More? follow-up activities.
Hayes Presidential Center Development Director Kathy Boukissen is seeking additional sponsors for school systems that do not have adequate funding for a visit.
