Sebree Receives Mini Grant
Congratulations to Sebree Elementary School for being a "Delta Dental Making Smiles Happen Arts in Education" grant recipient! Sebree Elementary will receive $540 to enhance students' arts in education experience. The award amount is given in a voucher to fund a performance by the Kentucky Shakespeare Arts Group which will perform at Sebree. The Grant is sponsored by Delta Dental of Kentucky and the Fund for the Arts.
Sebree Students Take the Lead
Each grade level participated in Students Take the Lead as a school-wide event. Intermediate grade students were given an extreme environment in which they were to work collaboratively to research and create a mode of survival using everyday household items. The students brought in the items needed for the project. In addition to the research and model, the students also created a presentation of their choice to a buddy class in the primary grades. Students had to use communication and problem solving skills. The creation of the models for survival forced students to think deeper and have discussions around what would be the most suitable for their environment.
The primary grade students were very attentive to their older peers during the presentations. They were very intrigued by the models and took their role in developing an art project to supplement or enhance the presentations very seriously. They took pride in their work and enjoyed the guidance of older peers.

WC "All Day, Every Day" Student Attendance Initiative
A recent study shows that students who miss more school than their peers consistently score lower on standardized tests, regardless of their age, demographic group or where they live.
Improving student attendance is an essential, cost-effective but often overlooked strategy for school improvement, closing achievement gaps and ensuring all our students are on-track to learn and succeed.
**Sebree Elementary's attendance for December 2016 was 95.40%.

PFA is a non-profit organization that implements innovative Fitness in Education in elementary schools. “Our school applied for this grant to offer our students an opportunity that would otherwise be unachievable in obtaining fitness equipment and program support to assist with health and fitness. By bringing Project Fit America to Sebree all students will benefit greatly!” stated Dawn Forker, Sebree Principal.
The Project Fit America grant funded by Baptist Health Madisonville includes state-of-the-art fitness equipment specifically designed to address the deficit areas where children fail fitness tests; indoor fitness equipment; a dynamic curriculum with games, activities and challenges for kids with the PFA outdoor & indoor equipment; the program also teaches character development, sportsmanship, team work and leadership skills.
“The partnership between our organizations will serve as a cornerstone for enduring community health and wellness. Baptist Health Madisonville’s sponsorship of Project Fit America is another example of our proactive response to the growing need for medical and wellness services in our community,” stated Kristy Quinn-Marketing and PR Coordinator. Quality fitness in education has a direct impact not only a child’s health but their academic success,” said Stacey Cook, Executive Director, “We are extremely proud of Baptist Health Madisonville for their commitment to bring this program to the community and for their dedication to improving the health and wellness of children.”
