MMSD Creative Corners grant application

Follett - Dec 10, 2018 presentation and ordering information

All MMSD LMTS received a Titlewave list in your inbox. Just in case you've never had a list shared with you, you can find it under "Saved Lists" and "My Inbox":

 

 

 

Once you're in the list, please take a look at the notes we've added to each item, which include goals and criteria for your grant proposal. As I mentioned in our session, all of these items were chosen with these goals in mind, so it's all in how they're implemented. Any of this information can be edited by you:

 

 

 

Below are the Destiny Collections that coincide with each building level list:

Elementary Makerspace Collection

Middle School Makerspace Collection

High School Maker Space Collection

 

Once you are in the Collection, you can make a copy of it and then edit it as your own. We added tags to show how these resources align to the goals and criteria of the grant. Once you've copied it, any of this can be changed.

 

 

Follett will provide a barcode and MARC record for any maker items purchased through Titlewave. The promo bundles for elementary, middle, and high are redeemable with purchases of $1500 or more.

 

Julia Hilmer and Nancy Stetzinger are both available to answer any questions you may have.  Their contact information is below.

Julia Hilmer  - jhilmer@follett.com

Nancy Stetzinger - nstetzinger@follett.com

 

Don't forget to take advantage of the Follett Makerspace promotion.  Buy $1,500 of maker items (your selections or Follett' bundles) and get $300 of additional product.  See Follett flyer linked below for promo code.
