Principal Romero Writes Grant for Parkside Elementary:
Parkside Elementary Principal Lindsey Romero, Assistant Principal Nichole Penix and Social Worker Michelle Bouwman were all on hand to receive a $5,000 grant from the Larry H. Miller Charities organization. The grant was awarded by Greg Johnson, executive manager of Larry H. Miller Chevrolet Murray, and also attending the presentation were Murray City School District Superintendent Jennifer Covington, and Murray Education Foundation Director Jeanne Habel.
Principal Romero wrote the grant at the suggestion of Mrs. Bouwman, with the purpose of continuation and expansion of a program called “Mindful Moments: Teaching Students to Understand and Self Regulate Their Emotions” (using the MindUp Curriculum from the Hawn Foundation).
Congratulations to Principal Romero and her staff for pursuing this opportunity, and sincere thanks to the Larry H. Miller Charities for their generosity in providing funding for impactful program.
