The Executive Board would like to thank all of the families who came to our PTA meeting on April 11th to vote on One Time Grants. All grant proposals were unanimously approved!
The following projects will be funded by the PTA this spring/next fall:
1. Technology Grant
-The fourth grade laptops at the Carroll Street site will be replaced.
-The multimedia iPads at the Carroll Street site will be replaced. This means that the current multimedia iPads will be pushed out to the other classrooms.
-The fifth grade WeVideo subscription for making online movies will be renewed.
-PTA money will be spent on the school's database system which tracks students in math, reading and writing from year to year.
2. Fountas and Pinnell Leveled Text Sets
These texts will support Guided Reading work and will both support the interest of students and also mirror the levels of texts that are utilized in the classrooms.
3. Border Crossers Training
Teachers mostly in grades 3-5 (the PTA already paid for a training of PreK-2nd grade staff) will have the opportunity to take the 6 hour training session.
4. Expanding Expressions Tool Kit and Language Processing Test
5. Black History Month Collection
This will be curated by Ms. Marina and Ms. Shari and illustrated by PS 372 students .
6. A water fountain/water bottle filling station
For the gym at the Carroll Street site (from the after school budget).
