Good morning, Please know that I appreciate the Target gift card that
you gave me for the Neeta health office. So far, I purchased the board
games Heads Up and Bananagrams Party. I decided to wait another week
or so until Target stocks the shelves for the holidays to see the best
selection before finishing my purchases. The students who are stuck
with me in the health office will enjoy playing with these items.
Thank you again for your generosity.  Regina

Hi Mrs. Cone,

Thank you and the MLEF Board and Members for the gift card from Lakeshore Learning!  I look forward to purchasing something educational, yet fun for the students to use in the Health Office at Nokomis.  

Best Regards,

Dear MLEF,

I am writing to thank you for your generous $500 award. I was very happy and appreciative to learn that I was selected as the recipient of this grant.

This year I am attempting to improve how students learn history. This Summer I was fortunate enough to learn how to educate using a new approach that teaches history through games and game- like learning. Your grant has allowed me to buy games and supplies that will help me implement the program which I intend to expand in the next years. My hope is to educate other teachers in the district to apply this style of teaching history. Thanks to you, I am one step closer to that goal.
