GIFT Grant Teaches Students about Día de los Muertos
The Home and School Association awarded Spanish teachers Mrs. Jennifer Brown, Ms. Alison Howells, and Ms. Monica Lynn a Grant for Innovative Frameworks in Teaching (GIFT) for a cross-curricular and cross-divisional experience designed around Sewickley Academy’s World Language classes.
After a series of different iterations of the Academy, Sewickley education is handed over to two educators, Miss Munson and Miss Dickinson. Miss Munson's school primarily served male students while Miss Dickinson's classes were all female. There was a potent rivalry between these two institutions.
