"The fifth grade team has used the Kahoot platform to engage students during remote learning in many ways. We have created math review challenges as well as Science and even ELA/Grammar check-ins. The students love that they can complete at their own pace and see how they measure up against their classmates. As a teacher, I love that students can take a challenge more than once if they want to spend some more time reviewing concepts and then come back and take the challenge again. When students see Kahoot as an activity to be done during their remote time there is always a positive response and complete engagement! We all love this tool and so appreciate the support of the Norwell Education Foundation."

"Thank you to NEF and all of the contributors for providing the NMS Physical Education Department with the funds needed to purchase high quality Pickleball rackets for the middle school students. We now have enough rackets so that every student in a Phys Ed class can have their own racket and work on learning and improving on the skills needed to participate in the multi-generational game of Pickleball. The grant from NEF has also given us the opportunity, during the Covid-19 restrictions, to safely offer Pickleball instruction to our students and give them the opportunity to safely participate in the fastest growing sport in the country."

"Norwell Middle School is so fortunate to have NEF to help purchase 24 Sphero robots to use in a newly created class, computational thinking, for 7th and 8th graders. This course provides an opportunity for students to use robots to collaborate, learn blocks based coding and move on to learning how to write their own code. We have loved watching the excitement in students as they learning how to control the robots through their code, problem solve and apply their mathematical knowledge when writing their code. Thank you NEF for this opportunity."
