Congratulations to Mrs. Lisa Blank and Chieftain Elementary! California Casualty Field Marketing Manager Beth Nagy recently presented a $250 Music and Arts Grant to Chieftain Elementary. Mrs. Blank applied for the grant to transform her art classroom from teacher directed to more student directed learning. By offering a variety of choices to engage all learners, she intends to make art more meaningful and exciting for her students. Mrs. Blank will use the funds from the grant to purchase trays, bins, and other organizational items to give students an environment in which they can move, select materials, create, and clean up more independently. To be eligible for the grant, teachers must be active employees of a public K-12 school and members of the National Education Association.
