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.
(Note: If you would like to be part of the Teacher Grant review committee in January: reviewing the grant applications and making a recommendation to the PTA Executive Board, please let Ginnie know.)
Not only do the Great Gatherings build our community, they also raised $17,000 for PTA! Thank you for your support. Plus, some events still have spaces available. Sign up HERE! (Click on ‘Adults Only,’ ‘Children,’ or ‘Families’ to see the list of events in each category.)
