Do you have an idea not covered by your current budget that will take your curriculum to the next level? Is there an award-winning program that you would like to adapt for use at LVMS? As a Parent/Teacher organization, we feel that it is important to offer a Teacher Grant Program to fund classroom projects that aim to foster creativity and critical thinking in students. And, to recognize the extra efforts of our dedicated LVMS educators.
Some past Teacher Grant-funded programs have supported:
STEM learning with drones, VR & 360 VR goggles to provide student immersion experiences in places around the world being studied, and the addition of a Drone Club to the school.
History Supplemental Material with Teacher subscriptions for TCI History Alive & the Ancient World to supplement 6th grade curriculum
Mind-Up curriculum (lessons offering strategies to improve self-regulation, build stress resilience, and encourage a positive mindset)
Miscellaneous Science Equipment with the purchase of VEX Robotics Kits for STEM club and classes and an interactive globe.
How to Apply ~
March 24, 2023 Application Deadline
To apply for a LVMS PTA Teacher Grant, you must be a current year member of the LVMS PTA. Teachers will be notified by email regarding the status of their proposal by the PTA's Teacher Grant Committee. All approved materials must be purchased and used during the 2023-2024 school year. All purchases must be made with a Tax Exempt form as we are a non-profit organization.
As the Committee reviews your application we will discuss the number of students that will be affected by your proposal; the possibility of adapting your proposal for use with a greater number of students; and the availability of requested materials and how they may be shared with other classrooms.
Thank you in advance for participating in our Teacher Grant Program. We look forward to reviewing your proposals and we are thankful for all the love and care you give to our LVMS students.
