Hear Our Voices Podcast

We are excited to announce the first episode is available now! Check it out!!


Last April, 4th/5th grade teacher Zoe Manzo and Sand Point Elementary were the proud recipients of a Symetra Heroes In The Classroom MVP Award. This $20,000 grant has provided funding for Sand Point’s Hear Our Voices program. This innovative student achievement program focuses on providing a platform for fourth- and fifth-grade students to share stories by recording and producing oral histories. Students use technology to create a digital library that can be accessed at school and in the community to encourage a better understanding of the diversity in the school’s learning community, students’ connectedness with one another, and relationships between home and school culture. It is a program that combines English Language Arts, Social Emotional Learning, Career and College Readiness, as well as a Math component. Stay tuned for next months podcast to include more stories from students and families!
