Many of you have had questions about our teacher grant process. Below is grant request information from our Teacher Grant Request Form. If you have any questions, please contact PTO Treasurer Marina McFarren.
Teacher vs. PBL Grants
Teacher grants are designed to help teachers get supplemental funds to help in the classroom (e.g., purchasing needed supplies or staff development).
PBL grants in 2016-2017 are a flat $300 per classroom teacher to be used for PBL projects. (This totals $9,600 for PBLs.) The funds can be pooled together if grade levels are working together. PBL grants are transferred into the individual grade accounts in August.
First round grant request forms are due by September 28 and will be voted on October 17.
Second round grand request forms are due by February 1 and will be voted on February 13.
Teacher grant request form can be printed from the CSE PTO website at www.CSEPTO.com/file-cabinet.
Wow! It's hard to believe we are already in to our second week of school. We hope you have a fantastic year! PTO has hit the ground running, and we are ready to raise some money for you and our students.
This year’s main fundraiser is again the Boosterthon Fun Run, and we are so excited to finally host the run in the fall when weather is nicest and when funds raised can be put to use all year long! Hosting a Fun Run means there is no selling or delivering products. Once our program begins on Monday, August 22, family and friends anywhere in the world can support our school by giving pledges toward the number of laps your students will run on the day of the Fun Run: Wednesday, August 31.
Our Fun Run also comes with a world-class character theme. This year’s theme is BACKYARD BOX OFFICE, a movie theme all about making a difference by getting into character. Our students will learn from five REAL kid difference-makers. From inventors, to world-class speakers, to business owners, to world-record holders, these five kids will inspire our students to practice the five Character ACTS and make a difference in our community. Check out the fun video below.
Through this year’s Fun Run, our school goal is to raise $25,000 for teacher grants and intervention support for our students. Teachers, we need YOUR help!
Teacher action steps during the program:
And don’t forget, you will receive 5% back of all net pledges to spend on your grade level. (Please note: This year the net pledges will be combined per grade and distributed evenly among your team.) There are numerous ways to increase student participation and increase your classroom pledges; please see the list of team incentives at the bottom of this post.
You will learn more at the Staff Meeting on Wednesday, August 17 at 8:30 a.m. in the Bungalow. Until then, if you want to get your students excited, you are welcome to use the attached activity sheet or coloring pages as encouragement.
Let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to another fantastic program!
