Thanks to support from the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation, the Parkersburg Area Community's Foundation recently awarded grants to schools throughout the region.

Pleasant Hill Elementary School in Calhoun received a grant.

The grants support projects that integrate the arts with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields and that foster partnerships between schools and arts organizations, artists, STEM professionals, or higher education institutions.

In Calhoun County, Pleasant Hill Elementary School will provide students with the opportunity to learn about other cultures and countries through learning to play new instruments and by participating in movement and dance activities, while also communicating with other professionals and students on a global scale via technology.

The school is partnering with Glenville State College, which will provide an art instructor to visit the school once per week to assist with the project.
