PTA is excited to share we recently met to review the fall applications and determine allocation of biannual funds. Each application was carefully considered using the predefined evaluation criteria of:
- Number of students directly impacted
- Relative value
- School improvement
- Date of project/program
The committee was fortunate to review 20 applications and approve or partially approve 15 projects for a total of $3,000! The types of grants awarded in this round range from curriculum specific projects such as owl pellet dissection, character trait art sculptures, and garden boxes to resources that students will use in the classroom including tablets with charging stations, quick word handbooks, multiplication flash cards, and flexible seating options.
We would like to thank the teachers for an impressive number of creative and practical ideas and look forward to seeing the mini-grants positively impact our students and school in the near future.
**Please Note: The spring 2019 application period is coming soon! Check back here for more details to be posted in the month of December.
