Cato Teacher Awarded Grant by Local Media

Congratulations to Allisson Bogart, Science Teacher at Cato Middle School, on being selected as this month’s recipient of KBAK TV’s Once Classroom at a Time grant.  Bogart was surprised during one of her classes by KBAK News and Weather Anchor, Aaron Perlman. 

Perlman, along with program sponsor, Mor Furniture for Less, presented a check to Bogart for $1,000. She plans to use the money to teach her students about aviation by having them build remote controlled aircrafts. “The kids have to design and build them using bulk material. They have to learn how to code the motors using the computer program,” she said. 

Perlman says the goal is to provide teachers with additional funds to do amazing classroom projects.“I feel honored to be a part of One Classroom At a Time. I get to see the expression of happiness on the students faces when we present these checks,” he said.
