INNOVATION GRANTS APPEAL
The PTC has started its annual Innovation Grant campaign and is appealing directly to you to support its Innovation Grant Program and asking that each family consider giving $25, $50 or more. Innovation Grants promote innovation in and out of the classroom by providing funding to faculty who demonstrate an extraordinary commitment to our children’s future. Past winning grants funded innovative projects such as Seesaw Recording Studios, Trail Cameras, and Wind Energy Turbines. For more information about Innovation Grants, click here. You can easily make an Innovation Grant Donation online here or make a check payable to the Avoca PTC (Memo: Innovation Grants). Questions? Email Innovation Grant Chair, Ann Heinz
