MIDDLETOWN -- Thursday morning the students
at New Holland-Middletown School enjoyed their assembly for the end of the first quarter. Included in the morning of special awards
and recognitions were two special guests.
John Endsley of the Mason City
Monsanto facility was on hand to present the school with a check for
$20,000. The money comes from a STEM grant to be used by the
school for improving its science labs.
STEM is an acronym for
science, technology, engineering and math. The funding is to
be used to advance the school's education through better equipment
and newer technology.
Superintendent Todd Dugan said
during the presentation that during the last year, the school has
received more than $137,000 in grant funding for building improvements,
advancement in technology and now advancement in science. He
also told the audience of students and interested parents that this
was only the beginning. The school will continue to work to
earn more grants that will ultimately improve the educational offers
to all its students.
