The positive impact of Proposition R continues to be felt in classrooms throughout the Mehlville School District. At Washington Middle School, Prop R funds paid for new microscopes that are being used in science classes.
“These microscopes open up a whole new world for our students,” explained science teacher Lindsey Roy. “Whether it is a strand of hair or a drop of blood, the kids get so excited when they see things that previously were invisible to the naked eye.”
Washington Middle Principal Adam Smith said money generated by Prop R enabled him to purchase 24 microscopes for his students.
