Hopatcong Tulsa Trail Elementary School special Red Carpet Event “showed off” the school’s airing of their Classroom Close-Up Segment, CoHeSiOn.
Students and families were treated to a special Red Carpet Event on November 27, 2018 at the Tulsa Trail Elementary School. Funded by the Hopatcong Education Association through a Project Pride Grant, the red carpet event “showed off” the school’s airing of their Classroom Close-Up Segment, CoHeSiOn: Family Bonding.
This segment was one of the last to be aired for the Emmy award winning show after 25 years. The segment featured Sussex County educators, Jennifer Neu, Danielle Kovach, and Alison Ibaceta conducting one of four family science nights. This was part of an NJEA HIPP Foundation Grant that the teachers earned and is worth just under $10,000. Now in its second year, students and families work together to solve a problem presented in the project-based learning activity. At the end of the evening, families are given extension activities to continue STEM projects at home.
During the Red Carpet Event, students and families celebrated the grant’s success by viewing the Classroom Close-Up Segment and enjoying cake and refreshments funded by the Hopatcong Education Association. This event is one of many Pride in Public Education activities carried out by the HEA each year. Volunteering to produce this event is one of the many ways that Hopatcong School District employees give back to the Hopatcong community.
