It is with great pleasure that we introduce the proposals approved for the PTO Teacher Gifts grant program! As mentioned last month, the PTO Teacher Gifts program is a long standing tradition in which the PTO donates funds to provide opportunities for District 29 students. Because of your donations and participation in PTO fundraising efforts, the PTO was able to grant $41,856.29 towards this tradition. This is your PTO dollars at work.
Many thanks to staff who submitted a wealth of innovative ideas. Their dedication, professionalism, and love of teaching is evident in all that they do and our children’s educational journey will benefit from gifts granted.
