The Education Foundation is in its 13th year of existence and thanks to community support has raised over $1.5 million. We will be giving back our 500,000th dollar this year to the district in the form of teacher grants. Funds raised through the Foundation are used to provide scholarships to selected graduating seniors, offer programs and opportunities for students and staff, as well as award grants to teachers for the development and implementation of innovative teaching programs within the classroom not otherwise funded by tax dollars.
