Ninth District PTA is offering Program Grants to unit and council PTAs in good standing. These grants are to develop and implement programs and projects that support the PTA mission and goals.
Grants are available for programs in the following areas at the unit and council levels:
- Health and welfare,
- Parent and student education,
- Parent and student involvement.
Ninth District PTA grants are a one-time funding source. Individual grant awards will not exceed $800.
The grant committee met last week and awarded the following PTA units grants to assist with programs at their schools.
Casa de Oro PTA – $800 Grant for an after-school choral music program that will be open to all grades (Transitional Kindergarten through sixth grade).
Hope Elementary School PTA – $800 Grant for a Compassion Day program that will introduce neurotypical and “able-bodied” students to some of the challenges their peers navigate while trying to access the same education, demonstrating the necessity for modifications and accommodations for disabled students.
Lincoln Elementary PTA – $800 Grant for a community closet to have items of high demand readily available in the Family Center. This will assist with meeting the needs of students immediately without a delay.
Logan Memorial PTSA – $800 Grant for an educational program to survey the campus climate and support the administrators, teachers, parents and students in cultivating a more welcoming and safe environment. Survey results will be shared with the school community and Logan Memorial PTSA will facilitate a series of three parent and student feedback sessions.
Mount Miguel PTSA – $800 Grant for a Black History Month program that includes community speakers, a contest for students to submit original projects in several categories (dance, music film, literature, photography, visual arts), transportation to the SDSU Black Conference and more.
Rolando Elementary School PTA – $800 Grant for a program that is 6 weeks of ballroom dance lessons that ends with a dance showcase. Students will participate in dance lessons to learn basic fundamentals and a choreographed dance they will perform in front of their parents. In previous years, this program was for all 4th grade students. The students that are now in 5th and 6th grade were unable to participate in the 4th grade ballroom dance program due to the pandemic. The PTA approved a motion to include the 5th and 6th grade students this year which created an added expense.
Sage Creek High School PTSA – $400 Grant to help fund their series of College and Career Prep programs.Sherman PTA – $800 Grant to fund and support the Science Club on campus.
