Grant-funded programs yield more student opportunity in Thompson

Thompson Public Schools will roll out several new grant-funded programs that target the social and emotional wellbeing of students and strengthen professional relationships with key industry partners to yield student opportunities.

The latest grants from the Connecticut State Department of Education and Connecticut Marine Trades Association bring the district to a total of $103,127 in grant funding thus far from various organizations, this school year alone.

Student opportunity is expanding, thanks to grant funding from the Connecticut Marine Trades Association in conjunction with Anderson Windows, Superintendent Melinda Smith said. The grants, totaling $2,000, collectively provide boat building kits and supplies, transportation to the upcoming Hartford Boat Show and student stipends for their demonstration of trade skills at the February event.

The middle school students in the boat building after-school program, the only one of its kind in this area of Connecticut, will be mentored by professionals in the trade who will visit Thompson to work with the children and provide information about career pathways.

“You can’t even put a price tag on that,” Smith said.

With a $10,000 Title IV grant through the Connecticut State Department of Education, the district will also offer stress-reduction activities - including yoga - in courses taught by Thompson educators, certified by Rhode Island-based Shri Yoga. The classes are expected to be offered at the middle and high school level next fall.

At Mary R. Fisher Elementary, an early childhood social skills program endorsed by the National Association for the Education of Young Children will be implemented to teach students coping and self-regulating skills. The program not only provides strategies for children, but also helps faculty members approach students who are under stress, Smith said.

“It’s our obligation as a school district to educate the whole child,” she said. “We know through research that relaxation, yoga and having time for kids to sit and be calm improves student achievement and performance.”
