Let's build up our Teacher Grant fund!

As you know, our teachers are some of the best around and they have fabulous ideas on how to make the learning experience for our children even better! We'd like to provide funds for teachers to help them turn those ideas into reality. Last year we granted over $35,000 for things such as:

  • $200 per classroom teacher and $100 per specialist teacher to use at their discretion (used for games, incentives, books and more)
  • New gym mats for physical education classrooms
  • Calming corners including sensory supplies, fidgets, bean bags and pillows
  • "Rockin" chairs, stools and other alternative seating
  • Additional math enrichment and games for classrooms
  • Desk cycles for fidgety learners (stationary bikes in the classroom!)
  • Furniture and organizational support in classrooms
  • Tower Gardens
  • Chromebooks
  • Leveled readers for all Chinese classrooms to enrich their classroom libraries

This year, not only do we plan to run a big Teacher Grant process next month, but we also hope we can grant teacher wishes as they come up throughout the year ~ "Just In Time!" Please help us build our fund such that teachers can add educational tools and equipment to their classrooms and experiences to our children's school year!

Your donations could win us Bonus Cash Prizes, too! These prizes will be awarded

  • hourly drawings of $1,000 for donations transacted the previous hour ("Golden Tickets") for all 24 hours,
