5th Grade Leadership Team Helps Secure a Huge Grant!

Mr. Bodary, science teacher at Noble, and his students, played a huge role in assisting the Littlefield Community Association secure a $300,000 grant from The Skateboard Project. The kids wrote numerous letters, and their beautiful presentations impressed the funders.

The $300,000 award was made possible through the generosity of Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation. The skate park which will be located at Littlefield Park, adjacent to the basketball court behind Noble Elementary-Middle School, is expected to be completed in 2023.

Littlefield and its partners are excited and looking forward to working with the City of Detroit and The Skatepark Project to create a skatepark that reflects the beauty and uniqueness of Detroit.

We are proud that our students played a significant role in helping Littlefield Community Association win this grant! Thank you, Mr. Bodary for encouraging your students to partake in this endeavor and showing them how to be leaders.
