Each year around this time teachers, students and parents across our district think big and take the first step to putting their innovative ideas into action in our schools by applying for Spirit grants. Information is gathered, educational dreams are put into words and the applications are submitted to our Grants Committee. Grant Applications are due January 26, 2017 at noon. From the end of January through March the committee meets two to three times a week to assess each grant based on its merits and alignment with our mission. The culmination of this work is Grant Day on April 12, 2017, when the grant awards will be announced across this district.
