Grove Foundation donates to District 58 Little Sprouts program

DOWNERS GROVE – Downers Grove Grade School District 58 recently received a $500 donation from the Grove Foundation to benefit its Little Sprouts program.

Little Sprouts supports the first grade science curriculum, New Plants. Students travel to the Downers Grove Park District’s Interpretive Center at Lyman Woods to participate in four stations, which provide the students with hands-on experiences like explore the inner workings of a bean seed, identifying the parts and functions of a plant and making soil by following a recipe in a cooking show format, among others.

The Grove Foundation has donated to District 58 for Little Sprouts several years. Other community organizations that have provided support for the program have included the Pierce Downer Heritage Alliance and the District 58 Education Foundation.
