PERRYSBURG - The Perrysburg Schools Foundation has awarded six mini-grants to Perrysburg teachers this winter. These mini-grants are funded by contributions from individuals in the community through the Foundation's annual fund drive.
The Perrysburg Schools Foundation mini-grant program was the first project undertaken by the foundation board following its inception in 1985. The mini-grants are designed to enable teachers at all grade levels to bring innovative ideas, techniques and resources to the classroom using funding other than tax dollars.
The grants, which totaled $1,541, were in the following areas:
•    Olivia Zuchowski and Mandy Craig, Woodland Elementary all-day kindergarten:  Interactive Writing and Reading Teaching Cart for each teacher, $562. The carts will be used to enhance daily interactive writing at the kindergarten level. Students will be able to participate in the writing process, modeling for their peers, as well as allowing the teachers to model for a large group of students.
•    Maura Meyers, Perrysburg Junior High, grades 6-8: Art for Special Needs, $55. The money will provide materials for students on Individual Education Plans (IEP) who need project modifications.
•    Julie Jagodzinski, Perrysburg Junior High School, grades 6-8: Application of Social Skills in a Real World Setting, $100. The grant will purchase games that students with and without disabilities will play to encourage social skills, such as taking turns.
•    Kerry Stoots, Perrysburg Junior High School, grades 6-8: Battling Bullies with Books!, $70. This grant will purchase books to help develop a deeper understanding of both bullying and accepting others.
•    Andrea Monheim, Tom Przybylski, Nicole Wagner, Perrysburg Junior High School, grades 6-8 - New School Counselor-Lead Groups, $473. The money will provide materials for school counseling groups at the junior high in the areas of study skills and dealing with anxiety and stress.
