Students at 13 schools in Lakewood’s Clover Park School District will benefit from a $2.48 million grant from the Department of Defense. Grant funds will be used in two ways: to boost student achievement in science and math using technology and engineering, and to teach kids about community, personal responsibility and well-being.

Schools receiving grant money are:

• Beachwood, Carter Lake, Clarkmoor, Evergreen, Greenwood and Hillside elementary schools, all located on Joint Base Lewis-McChord
• Custer, Dower, Idlewild, Lake Louise, Oakbrook and Park Lodge elementary schools
• Harrison Preparatory School

To qualify for a grant, a school must have at least 15 percent of its students who come from military families.

  1. My son goes to Carter Lake. He’s in first grade, so I don’t expect the curriculum to be too terribly difficult, but at the beginning of May, he told me that they didn’t do science any more because the teaching assistant they had had left. A month and a half without science. Hopefully this will remedy future situations like that.
