3 Teacher PTO minigrants awarded!

We are pleased to award 3 teacher minigrants in this Fall award cycle.

Ms. Then will receive $150.00 to create a Fourth grade Comics Club.  As Ms. Then notes, ‘The educational potential of combining pictures and words has become apparent; in a world where children are faced with a multiple of electronic gadgets and distractions, they still love to read comic books!”

Ms. Head will receive $200.00 to purchase software applications for the IPad mini initiative. The first grade team, along with the ITF and Literacy Coach of Claxton, was awarded a grant from ACSF to purchase 30 IPad minis, and no funds remained for purchase of software. This grant will purchase the software needed.

Ms. Lange was awarded $150.00 to help expand the Spanish/English Bilingual section of our library. Students from K-5 will be affected by the expansion of this section in the media center.

Please join the PTO in congratulating these teachers when you see them!

The spring minigrant deadline will be announced later in the school year.
