Platte #1 Receives 3 Grants in the Last Week

Platte County School District #1 has recently received news that it has received three grants that were applied for earlier this year.


The first grant award of $86,000 will be used by for improvements to the Wheatland High School auditorium sound, lighting and theatrical areas. Several improvements are already being completed on the auditorium and the grant will expedite upgrades that will make a better experience for our students and community. The grant is through the Wyoming Department of Education’s Wyoming Trust Fund for Innovative Education.

The second grant award, through the Wyoming Department of Family Services, is a Community Partnership Grant that will fund early childhood activities in the district and provide additional library services at the Wheatland Public Library. Renee McCain of Libbey Elementary will be the coordinating early childhood liaison for the district with efforts centering on creating kindergarten readiness for all incoming students. The grant is for two years and is for $100,000.

The final grant award of $4,200 is for Wheatland High School to continue the Rachel’s Challenge initiative that began this past year. The organization's mission statement is to "motivate, educate and bring positive change to many young people" in the memory of Rachel Scott, who was the first victim in the Columbine High School shootings. WHS’s Peer Counselors have been working on a “kindness message” and Rachel’s Challenge is just one of the anti-bullying initiatives the school is incorporating.

Congratulations to Wheatland Middle School on the selection of Todd Paisley as a 2016 nominee for the Broadcom MASTERS national middle school science competition.
