91 CASH GRANTS AWARDED TO NEWPORT-MESA TEACHERS DURING ANNUAL AWARDS DINNER
On February 9th, The Newport Mesa Schools Foundation (NMSF) awarded 91 grants totaling $89,000 to teachers from our Newport-Mesa Unified School District. NMSF received 149 grants requests from 24 of our 32 schools in the district. Eight Schools did not make application this year. The average grant given was $920.
Teachers created their projects and submitted their applications for the monetary grants in the fall of 2016. NMSF assembles teams of grant readers from around our community and these volunteers spend many hours evaluating each grant. All grant requests receive multiple blind-readings which result in a score assigned and grants are funded until grant money runs out.
This year's grants run the gamut of "Creative Chemistry" from California Elementary School, to "Picture Perfect Writers" from Newport Coast Elementary, and "Lights, Camera, iPADS!" from Costa Mesa High School.
All teachers awarded grants were invited to Newport Mesa Schools Foundation's annual awards dinner and invited on stage to receive their checks, certificates and "Apple Award".
