REF along with the Allergan Foundation funded a grant for a sawmill in Construction Trades. Jeff McNew shared, "The sawmill is awesome! We are able to mill our own lumber and make projects out of wood. It is great to show the students different types of cuts on a log. The students are able to see where their lumber comes from and see boards that were trees just a few weeks ago. We have been cutting cedar and we will soon be cutting some mesquite."

Cassidy Gibbs, 3rd grade teacher at Robinson Elementary was awarded a mini grant from REF for High Score Learning with Gaming! Third grade students in math will now have items that provide more engaging ways to enhance math skills, critical thinking, and are fun while learning. The Osmo games will give students opportunities to create and think critically. The VersaTiles allow students to practice math skills with challenging fun puzzles that are standards-aligned. The giant jenga (Tumbling Timbers) can be used in a variety of ways in the classroom to make learning engaging and challenging. I can use it for review activities in both math and science, team building, class incentives, math facts, math stations, and so much more. All three of these products will help challenge student growth in small groups, whole group, and math stations.
