Projects Approved for 2023:
We will have excitement this year as a result of the Foundation’s contribution towards the cost of purchasing various items in all grade levels including Interactive and non-interactive flat-panel TVs, PE Supplies, science materials, band equipment, books, curricular supplies, as well as materials needed to support the TRIBE freshman orientation and special education.
In addition to the grants requested by teachers, the Foundation went a step further and allowed every teacher to request items of immediate need through the Foundation Mini-Grant program. This program allows teachers to quickly purchase items through an expedited process to bring immediate resources to the classroom.
