SEELEY LAKE — Seeley Lake Elementary School first grade teacher Rachel Bemis is this week’s winner of a Republic Services and KPAX-TV One Class at a Time Grant.
Bemis has been awarded $250 which she will use to purchase art supplies for her classroom.
“The kiddos are working on art integration at this time with their math. They’re in first grade and they’re working on the fact families, so they have a little polar bear craft that they’re working on, and they’re going to be putting their math facts on their polar bear," Bemis said.
She’s working to promote more art integration into all areas of her classroom and says items like water-colors, chalk, oil pastels, and clay are just some of the supplies she will add.
In addition, Bemis is hoping to bring guests into the classroom to discuss various forms of art, adding that the integration include all subject areas.
