Grant allows Greenfield students to visit Monterey Peninsula museums

Fourth graders from Oak Avenue Elementary School visited Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History on Wednesday as part of a grant the district earned to give the students access to Monterey Peninsula museums.

The $5,000 grant will allow students from the Greenfield Union School District to visit the Monterey Museum of Art and the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History. For many of the district’s students, this will be their first time visiting an art museum.

“Introducing our students to the vast opportunities that exist outside of Greenfield can have a profound impact on their learning experience, and we have to thank our generous partners at the museums who are giving us this chance,” said Superintendent Trevor McDonald.

Greenfield Union has not been immune to the budget cuts that have affected most schools in California. McDonald is trying to forge partnership with community organizations to restore some of the services that budget cuts eliminated.

These kids are soooo cute! Don't they look like they're having tons of fun?
