PTO Teacher and Staff Grants
As a result of the wonderful effort and financial support of our No Hassle Fund, Charleston Wraps and SpiritWear, the PTO is able to reinvest those funds into Central. We're excited to announce that the PTO will fund $3000 for teacher and staff grants for Trimester 1 of the 2021-2022 academic year. Grants are intended to cover items that the school and District would not normally cover. In year's past, PTO grants provided opportunities for the Central staff to incorporate extremely worthwhile and creative items into their classroom spaces.
PTO Grants are open to all teachers, specialists, staff members and Central employees. There are no limitations as to where the items are sourced, so teachers/staff are encouraged to explore educational specialty vendors, in addition to traditional "big box" companies.
Applications are due Friday, November 12th. The grant process includes reporting back to our membership what items were purchase and how they are used, so we'll showcase that in later editions of the newsletter.
