—Student dictionaries, which help Happy Valley Elementary first-grade students in reading and writing by providing them with the student-friendly Quick-Word Handbook for Beginning Writers
—Whiteboards for All, which provided every student at Scouters Mountain Elementary with whiteboards, erasers and pens so they can show their thinking and teachers can honor and assess their level of understanding of lessons over Zoom
