Posted Tuesday, October 15, 2013
The Loveland City School District is pleased to announce Duke Energy and The National Theatre for Children have awarded Loveland Primary School (LPS) $2,000 as part of the company’s Energy Education in Schools Program. LPS was one of four Ohio and Kentucky schools Duke Energy awarded for having the highest total number and highest percentage of students whose families completed and returned a home energy survey during the 2012-2013 academic year.
“Loveland Primary School was thrilled to be a part of Duke Energy’s forward-thinking educational program,” said Kevin Fancher, LPS principal. “Having the resources to educate our students and parents about the benefits of energy efficiency was excellent, and to be selected as one of the winning schools made the participation all the more exciting for our school. We sincerely appreciate the partnership Duke Energy has developed.”
“This program has been well received by educators and students because it shares the benefits of using energy wisely in a format that is fun and makes learning easier for students,” said Gayle Lanier, Duke Energy senior vice president and chief customer officer. “I applaud the winning schools, students and their families for making a commitment to using energy more wisely.”
Representatives with Duke Energy presented LPS Principal Kevin Fancher with the check Friday, Oct. 11, at the conclusion of a live theatrical production featuring The National Theatre for Children designed to teach core education points about energy, resources, and how and why students can use energy wisely. In addition to enjoying the live performance, every student received a workbook of project-based assignments, including take-home work designed to engage parents.
