One Class At A Time: Ricki Thompson

Posted: Feb 05, 2018 4:19 PM Updated:

Ricki Thompson is helping her kindergarten students get firsthand experience with science by hatching chickens.

That’s why she’s this week’s One Class at a Time grant recipient.

First Interstate Bank and KXLH recently surprised Thompson’s class at Rossiter Elementary with a $250 check.

The money from the grant will be used to purchase all the materials needed to hatch chicken eggs in her kindergarten class. The project will help introduce the students to some science strategies.

Thompson says that getting this grant means that her students will get hands on experiences to enrich their curiosity of the world.

I just want to thank everybody that is involved with the grant and making it easy and available to teachers here in the district,” said Thompson.

Thompson added that out of pocket costs can sometimes limit what teachers can do and this grant is a huge help.
