As part of the PTSA's annual budget, we designate funds for a limited number of grants of up to $300 each which teachers/staff and formal student organizations with a sponsor may apply for. The funds can be used in support of projects, activities, events, and the purchase of supplies that enhance our students' classroom and co-curricular experience. Please note that some requests for funds will be filled by ongoing fundraising activities.
