Jackson Park Girls on the Run is fortunate to have a coach as supportive and engaged as Amanda Elliott. Elliott, the wife of Blues goalie Brian Elliott, has been with the JP GOTR group off and on for the past three years. Elliott was featured in a recent program highlighting GOTR to support their fundraising efforts.

Girls on the Run St. Louis is a life-changing, nonprofit program for girls in the 3rd through 8th grade, a critical time in girls' self-development. The mission is to empower girls for a lifetime of healthy living. The innovative program uses interactive, self-esteem enhancing lessons that develop the whole girl - physically, mentally, emotionally and socially - while also training for a celebratory 5k event, which occurs at the end of the season. Girls are empowered with positive self-awareness and increased confidence; a sense of achievement by training for and completing a 5k; and giving back to their community through a service project each season. Girls experience confidence through accomplishment, becoming girls who can!

Monsanto Fund Grant Supports Elementary STEAM

4 days ago

The School District of University City has been awarded a $55,000 grant from the Monsanto Fund’s K-12 Math & Science program to support STEAM initiatives in kindergarten, third and fifth grades. The initiative, titled U-Design Primary, provides students with authentic STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math) experiences through the use of Motorized Mechanisms, We Do, and EV3 Lego Education modules. The modules, in collaboration with district’s Elementary Science Curriculum, will strengthen STEAM confidence and aptitude.

U-Design will enhance students’ abilities to engage in the engineering design process (ask, imagine, plan, create, improve) to program and design robots during the school day connected to their Forces and Interactions science unit.

“We believe that integrating STEAM experiences through the teaching of the design process, leads to 21st century career-ready and innovative citizens who demonstrate the ability, confidence and inclination to deepen problem solving skills,” said Beverly Velloff, math and science curriculum coordinator.

The Monsanto Fund’s Math & Science Education K-12 grant program is designed to support programs in the St. Louis region that inspire and nurture students’ interest in math and/or science, offer innovative approaches to teaching or learning in math and science, and foster student achievement in math and/or science. Priority is given given to programs using evidence-based methodology.
