The PTA funds many enrichment initiatives for Lewis and Clark students.We provide money for projects that support the students' academic, artistic, cultural, and physical development; that help meet students' basic needs; that improve students' and teachers' access to and understanding of technology; and that foster inclusiveness and the celebration of diversity.The PTA's largest funded program is paying for the salary of the Family Resource Center (FRC) and supporting the ongoing operation of this very valued program. The PTA provides $6000.00 to teacher grants used for field trips and special classroom supplies, $500.00 for staff appreciation, $500.00 to maintain the outdoor discovery core, financial support of the EAST program and much, much more. Over the last few years, every grade level has benefitted by money raised by and provided by the PTA.Requests for funds over $150 will be reviewed 2 times a year, at the October, and March PTA meetings. In order to be reviewed during one of these cycles, this form must be submitted to the PTA one week before those meetings.You can fill out the application form here .Recently Approved Proposals:Funds for positive postcards for the FRC - $240.00IPads for the Resource Classes - $600.00funds for willife project in Betsy Sharkey class - $250.00Previously Approved proposals:5th Grade Field Trip Transportation - $400 view hereKindergarten Writing Curriculum - $429 view hereLiteracy Intervention - $4750 view herePeace Choir Shirts - $300 view hereBe Bucks Program - $500 view here4th Grade Novels for Independent Reading - $1800 view hereIpads for Interventions - $956.94 view hereActive Recess - $940 view here5th Grade Poetry Project - $2400 view here1st & 2nd Grade Leveled Literacy Intervention - $3800 view here
