Three Hamilton teachers’ projects have received generous donations from the Plum Creek Foundation.

Echo Allison (see photo), of Hamilton’s Gifted and Talented Program, will use $4,009 for “Amazing Architecture All Around.” About 40 fourth and fifth grade students in the Spectra program at Daly and Grantsdale Schools will learn about how architecture combines art, math and technology locally and around the world.

Jen Carmody, Hamilton High School English and Creative Writing teacher, will use $5,000 to continue publishing the HHS literary magazine “Rolling Roots.” They will buy an iMac and a MacBook pro computers, a color scanner/printer and software from Adobe to publish the magazine.

Ryan Shupp, a Hamilton High School teacher, will use over $3,000 for his program, “Opening Doors to Fine Arts and the Science of Film.”

In a news release, Plum Creek Foundation described its Montana Great Classroom Awards program as a way to provide public schools “with financial resources to enhance the learning environment in their classrooms and help enrich the educational experiences of students across western Montana.”
