Catholic Schools receive $60,000 grant from Fidelis Care

May 31, 2016
Fidelis Care, the New York State Catholic Health Plan, has again awarded Diocese of Rochester Catholic Schools a $60,000 grant to assist a special learning program called Math & Movement™ for grades K-8 in diocesan schools. Fidelis Care generously provided a
$60,000 implementation grant last year for the program.
“We are most grateful to Fidelis for this grant,” said Jona Wright, associate
superintendent of Catholic Schools. “By partnering with Math & Movement™,
diocesan Catholic Schools aim to combine health, wellness and academic growth
through a multi-sensory approach to teaching math that incorporates physical
exercise, stretching, cross-body movements, and visually-pleasing floor mats that
allow children to practice using visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning modalities.”
