Do you ever wonder how the PTA money that is raised is actually put into action? Funding Teacher Grants is just one of the many important line items in our budget. Each grant cycle (Fall, Winter, Spring) we award up to $2,000 in grant money. Teachers and staff submit grant applications with a maximum request of $500, and the PTA Executive Board reviews the applications with a goal of funding as many projects as possible within the allotted budget. This cycle, we received 13 applications and it was difficult to narrow it down. We were able to award six grants for a total of $1,869.99!
Hannah Flanagan – Flocabulary for Vocabulary!
Tori Howell – Operation Mascot
Amy Hisel – Digging into Nonfiction & Informational Text
Robert Rain – Portable PA System
Danielle Jenkins – First Grade Readers
Tori Howell – Safety Patrol Needs Safety Too!
Two of the grants applied for fit into other budget lines, so we were able to fund those as well:
Margaret Malzer – New Poster Maker (Workroom Maintenance)
Shanon Cole – Tidy Front Porch (School/Classroom Resources)
The five grants that we were unable to fund will roll over into the next grant cycle.
