Holy Family Catholic Academy just announced that the Inverness school received a $7,500 Monsanto Fund grant for their Outdoor Classroom. Employees from Climate Corporation Chicago recommended Holy Family Catholic Academy to receive the grant from the Monsanto Fund's 2016 site grant initiative. Funds from the grant will be used to expand science and technology learning via Holy Family Catholic Academy's innovative outdoor classroom. "We are thrilled to receive this generous grant from the Monsanto Fund," said Principal Kate O'Brien. As the first preschool through Grade 8 school in the Chicago area to have a nationally certified outdoor classroom, HFCA is committed to furthering our students' study of science and the natural world. Our outdoor classroom provides a perfect backdrop to allow our students access to an authentic hands-on laboratory."
