Crestwood kids explain grant

Dear Editor,

We are the Turquoise Team at Crestwood Elementary School that received the Rockford Education Foundation (REF) grant for the “skylights” that was written about in the REF article in November. We were so excited to see our grant written up for all of Rockford to read about. We would like to give you some additional details about these “skylights” so everyone understands why REF gave them to us. We want to share with all of you what our grant will do!

Our team would like to explain: The skylights will help us concentrate because they make the florescence lights less bright in our room. Florescence lights flicker and make buzzing noises. The skylights get rid of the buzzing and the flickering. They help us to concentrate more. They will make us feel like we are outside and nature makes us feel calm. It will make us feel like we’re in the forest.

Thank you again, REF, for your support for our idea and we can’t wait until the day they are installed!

Mrs. Sanders’ and Mrs. Schroeder’s second-graders
