Teacher Grants Awarded

New this year, the PTO established the Teacher Grant Program.  The Committee reviewed 17 applications and was able to approve 14 of them, totaling approximately $5000.  Money raised from the Giant A+ program and Fun Run helped fund most of the grants.  Thank you for supporting our fundraisers!  The teachers are excited to receive their new learning materials.
