VIDOR — Vidor ACE Project Director Sally Andrews, at left, and Pine Forest Elementary ACE site coordinator Darrellyn Ford pose with an award they received recently at the Texas ACE annual conference in Austin. The Innovative Activity award was given for Ford’s “Mom and Me” and “Dad and Me” classes, which features Pine Forest students working in tandem with family members to create unique projects such as birdhouses, soap leaves, candy wreaths, flags, pillows and more. The ACE program is funded by a grant from the Texas Education Agency’s 21st Century Learning Centers program. It is in the fifth and final year of this cycle’s grant funding.
