  • Grant Spotlight - Sister Schools
    The Sister Schools grant involves students from Boyd Elementary who are native Spanish speakers and students from Lowery Freshman Center who are native English speakers. The classes come together four times during the school year; the Boyd students (grades 2-6) ride a bus to Lowery to visit their 9th grade friends. The interaction includes dialogue (in Spanish), songs, cultural presentations, games, stories and sometimes food.
  • According to the teachers at both schools, this interaction "has undoubtedly impacted our students in a very positive way," said Martina Thompson, Spanish II teacher at Lowery. "From leadership to friendships, to pride and validation of the children's mother tongue and the language our students at Lowery are learning, these visits have resulted in so much more than we even hoped for!"
