December 10, 2013 (Boulevard) – Clover Flat Elementary School in Boulevard, CA was awarded $5,000 from the Barona Education Grant Program this morning. Representatives from the Barona Band of Mission Indians and Assemblyman Brian Jones will be presented the grant to Clover Flat School, which is comprised of students from the Boulevard and Jacumba communities. The grant was written by Alpine resident, Donna Burton. Mrs. Burton is a second grade teacher and assistant principal at Clover Flat Elementary School in the Mountain Empire Unified School District.
Clover Flat will use the awarded money for academic improvement in the area of technology. The school will use the funds to purchase equipment for the purpose of technology education and historical documentation. Clover Flat plans to purchase an iMac desktop computer, two MacBook Pro laptop computers, and a Canon Camcorder.
Clover Flat has exciting plans for students to utilize this equipment. Some projects include publishing video yearbooks and producing and recording student projects. The purchase of this equipment also allows the Clover Flat staff to produce informational videos that highlight the many achievements of our students and school in general. These videos, along with the video yearbooks and other productions, will be used to inform parents from both communities about our school.
