During it's annual school grant process, the Education Foundation Board of Directors donated a total of $22,650 to GPPSD Schools. Iniatives such as musical intruments, High School First Responder program, acrobat swing for special needs students, academic support and flag football programs and hands on learning kits made the list!
The Education Foundation always enjoys this process as it puts the money in the classrooms, and is evident that these contributions enrich student's experiences.
The Education Foundation accepts applications annually from September to November. The group raises funds to help fill the gap between what is allocated to school boards from the government and what the needs are within the school.
The needs were large this year with approximately $65,000 total funds requested by the schools. The Education Foundation aims to help fill more needs with the support of the community in years to come!
