Highland Park Elementary ELA Teacher Awarded OK Community Cares Grant

Highland Park Elementary awarded an OK Community Cares grant to support their third grade English Language Arts class.

The funds from this grant will help purchase learning materials and resources to support student language growth.

“Forty-five percent of my classroom consists of students who are English Language Learners,” said Gabbie Wells, first year teacher at Highland Park Elementary. “Having the resources to allow them to explore their second language while using their first will boost their confidence in my classroom.”
