Thanks to Michelin’s generosity, biannually the Lexington One Educational Foundation offers this grant opportunity to teachers in Lexington District One through a generous annual gift. Teachers can apply for up to $250 of support to enhance unique educational experiences for their students. The intent is not to supplement normal school supplies, but to allow for more creative learning opportunities that are not typically supported by the school supply budget. 

Some of the fall projects chosen included language development for young students, strengthening reading and math skills, expanding knowledge of marine science knowledge through a field trip to the SC Aquarium, and teaching computational thinking and engineering principals through LEGO robotics. 

Congratulations to each of these teachers for this accomplishment! We greatly appreciate Michelin’s continued generosity and commitment to Lexington School District One teachers and students through the company’s partnership with the Foundation!
