PTA Mini Grants

We are thrilled by the response, and the grants that the PTA awarded this fall. We received eleven proposals with requests totaling over $4,700.00 Seven of these proposals were either fully or partially funded. The committee had many tough decisions to make with our limited funds ($1475.00).

The following grants were awarded this fall:

Katy Plotner - $160 Therapy Ball Chairs for use in the classroom

Melissa Suits (Title 1) - $367 for Comprehension Kits

Susan Stansbury - $301 for Rimball Portable Basketball hoops

Emily Delanty/Guadalupe Ricconi - $415 Bilingual Literature for Small Reading Groups

Ladonna Helm and Bridget Maloney - $175 for a photo printer (and minimal supplies) for use with writing projects in their classrooms [These two projects were similar and merged for funding]

Gail Beck - $66 for additional Habitats (funded last year) to accommodate more 2nd graders than last year.

A big thank you to all who participated in this process. We look forward to seeing these great ideas in use this year and seeing what other fun ideas our great teachers and staff will come up with next!

The 2010-2011 Mini Grant committee is -- Sue Tolman, Amy Ando, Sasha Rubel, Carolyn Beck, Allison Ryan, Gisella Sin, Mary Kate Arend, and Andrea Hoey.
