Belton Education Foundation Grants
Belton Educational Foundation is looking for innovative classroom and building projects that will have a lasting impact on our students. This year, grants can be accessed Google forms. Instructions are on the application form. You can access the form here:
The deadline is February 9, 2016, at 4:00 pm. Applications will not be accepted after that time.
Grants will be awarded on March 15, 2016.
Grant assistance will be provided at the Foundation office; click this link to a Google doc in order to sign up: https://goo.gl/MxzT6x If none of these times work with your schedule, please contact Heather McFarland via email to set up another time.
See Amanda if you have an interest in writing a grant. A team will be working with Ivy to write a building grant, but there are plenty of opportunities for grade level, department or individual teacher grants. The more innovative grants the better!
February P.D. - Message From Dr. Hardee
We received great feedback from the November PD sessions. Our administrative team is planning to expand options for individualized PD at the February 12th PD. We realize that great things are happening throughout the district and would like to give teachers an opportunity to share ideas and/or volunteer for facilitation of break-out sessions.
After your suggestions are submitted, our administrative and coaching teams will review suggestions and design and finalize Feb 12th PD plans.
Please use the link provided to record topics of interest as well as volunteering for facilitation.
Kindness Tree & Silent Gratitude
Silent Gratitude is a blog post I'd encourage you to read (click the link). This piece resonated deeply with me and I hope you find meaning in it as well. John O'Leary is a renowned motivational speaker from the St. Louis area whose sole mission is to help others live their life inspired. In these final days before break take a moment to encourage someone in our school family. Send a note of appreciation to a colleague and place a heart on our kindness tree located outside the conference room.
"Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone" - GB Stern
