Dodge Elementary PACE teacher, Janet Leffard, received one of four Jenice Riley Awards from the Alabama Humanities Foundation on October 7, 2013, in Birmingham, AL. The ceremony was held at The Club and acclaimed author, Winston Groom was the featured speaker.
Ms. Leffard wrote a grant proposal to create archaeology boxes to share with the grade levels at Dodge and her fellow PACE teachers in the Mobile County Public School System. The boxes will contain items purchased from the University of South Alabama Archaeology Museum giftshop and lesson plans. This will connect studies of indigenous tribes and explorers/settlers to south Alabama.
The theme is "connecting cultures through the centuries and the Influence of the past on today." Congratulations Mrs. Leffard and thanks for your contribution to learning in our schools!

I teach at Alba Middle and I help with the Good News Club on Wednesday afternoons. I feel like we are a part of Dodge Elementary so I wanted to congratulate you. Keep up the great work. Dr. Crist was our AP here at Alba many years ago.
