CPS Trust Awards $23,767 in Teacher Grants
This week, the CPS Trust Board awarded $23,767.37 in teacher grants to Crete Public Schools teachers and staff. Grants will be used to pay for items that enhance learning, but are not necessarily covered in the annual school budget.
This year, grants were awarded to purchase new technology, such as electronic Boogie boards (tablets), Chromebooks, ELMO, Echo Dot, Call to Code computer program, and iPads. Grants will also help pay for calculators, Learning Station, Stem Science, projectors, and Strive computer.
In addition, a $3,700 grant was awarded to the school nurses for the purchase of a portable spot vision screening device that will be used to screen all ages of students throughout the school district for vision issues.
Thank you to Crete Trust Board members Jane Fahrnbruch, Ann Teget, Robin Schelstraete, Joe Rohach and Jorge Paredes and all of the school administrators for helping with this week’s presentations.
All of the grant recipients will also be publically recognized at individual school events this spring. For more information about the CPS Trust or to make a tax-deductible contribution, visit http://bit.ly/2l8rebc
