We have some exciting news to share about our PTA fundraising and teacher support grants!
With your support, this September and January the PTA is able to award $2,000 in Teacher Grants. In September, the $2,000 was awarded to:
1.Hilary Mark, Nancy Felch, Julie Griffin (Reading Specialists): for Hi/Low reading materials for students in Grades 3-5 who are reading below benchmark;
2. Julie Griffin (Librarian): 2 author events and one book per classroom;
3. Hillary Mark (Reading Specialist): “Lending Library” of shared resources for teachers and aides (word study, phonics, reading); and
4. Julia Hughes: partial funding for Blue Bots with a recharging station and activity mats.
Julie, Hillary, Julia , and Nancy were extremely grateful for these Teacher Grants. Also, PTA Co-Presidents Gaya and Ginnie would like to pass on a thank-you to all of the PTA volunteers and donors who have made those grants possible.
