Foundation awards more than $10,300 in Classroom Impact Grants

PE Schork 3

The Foundation Prize Patrol looked different this year, but the thrill of awarding classroom grants to teachers remained the same. The Ray-Pec Public School Foundation on Friday, Dec. 11, awarded 19 grants, totaling $10,359, to teachers across the district. Many of the grant awards will be used for items to provide hands-on experiences for students. Some examples include sewing machines, Instant Pots, a slab roller for ceramic projects, and instruments for elementary music classes. 

Superintendent Dr. Mike Slagle, Foundation Executive Director Jodie Huston, Board Member Rich Bartow, and Foundation Secretary/Treasurer Pam Steele made the surprise presentations. To minimize the group size, presentations were made in the school foyers. Earlier this year, teachers and staff were provided the opportunity to apply for grants of up to $750 to enhance teaching and learning and impact student achievement. 

Pictured here: The Foundation awarded a Classroom Impact Grant of $738 to Peculiar Elementary School Music Teacher Katie Schork to purchase musical instruments. Schork joined the presentation virtually (at center). The grant award is held by her colleagues, Art Teacher Jenny Bullock, left, and Physical Education Teacher Chris Roller, right.
