McDonalds Awards Two Center Grove Teachers Grants
Excellent ideas for classroom activities have not gone unnoticed by your local McDonald’s® restaurants. For 17 years, McDonald’s Restaurants of Central Indiana has offered MAC Grants to help teachers Make Activities Count for their students. Laura Gunderson and Autumn Scheer will be awarded MAC Grants this year. Gunderson, a teacher at Center Grove Middle School Central will develop a book club for students to participate in and will be able to use a wide range of books. Scheer, a teacher at Center Grove Middle School North will create alternative work stations for students to explore team building and cooperative learning skills. MAC Grants is an on-going program that offers financial support to help teachers Make Activities Count for their students. Because lessons often become more meaningful when demonstrated with hands-on experiences, McDonald’s Restaurants of Central Indiana supports activities that supplement regular classroom curriculum.
The MAC Grants program provides funding to teachers for interesting and educational projects. Those who are interested in applying for the grant can submit an application at www.macgrantsindy.com during Fall 2017.
