The Imagine Campaign is the largest fundraising activity each year at Grant TK-8. We ask every family to contribute as they are able. Community donations pay the salaries of two awesome Grant K8 teachers, and provide programs in science, technology, engineering and art that would not exist without your support.
We are half way through our participation drive!
25% of our families have already given. Our goal is 100%
1st place is Ms Brandt’s class
2nd place is a 3-way tie between Ms Anthony, Ms Hurdle and Ms Wilson’s classes
Thank you to everyone that has already given! We are off to a wonderful start but still have a long way to go to raise the $80,000 necessary to pay for our science and art teachers. The district does not pay for these positions. They are 100% funded by OUR Grant TK8 community.
Introducing to you "in person", the wonderfully creative Sarah Ekedal, Our artist in residence and art teacher! Sarah's position and art programs at Grant are provided by your generous donations to the Imagine Campaign
Introducing to you "in person", the fabulous Elena Banks, Grant Science Teacher and Gecko Garden passionista! Elena's position and science programs at Grant are provided by your generous donations to the Imagine Campaign
If the Imaging Campaign raises more than is needed to pay for our community funded teachers the Grant Community Foundation distributes these funds - along with the money raised by the awesome annual Mission Hills 5K, to projects with a particular focus on science, technology, engineering, art and maths (STEAM), Examples of recent purchases include:
In the 2019/2020 school year our community raised more than $83,000 for STEAM programming at Grant. We had 72% participation at the elementary school level and 27% participation at the middle school level.
12 classes had 75% participation or more and won ice cream parties. The list of winning classes is: Averitt, Brandt, Caparell, Carroll, Crawford, Flanders, Harris, Kidder, Lovern, Silva, Steinberg & Wilson
