Attention teachers, staff and students!
Do you have an innovative idea to enhance learning at MES and need some funding to bring your project to life? The PTA can help.
Each year, the PTA allocates money for its Grants Program. The PTA Grants Committee exists to award funding to a variety of requests generated by teachers, staff, students and parents that enrich the learning environment. The committee recognizes the value of innovation, sustainability, education and culture, among others, and encourages the MES community to apply to fund requests that broaden learning in these and other areas.
Evaluation: The Grants Committee will evaluate requests based on the following:
- What is the benefit to the MES community?
- Who benefits and how?
- Is the request for something innovative?
- Is the request realistic and feasible?
- Can the request be executed well?
- Is the application legible and complete? Detailed budget included?
Please note that technology device requests will be referred to Brian Baron and/or the MES Foundation.
Application Deadline: Due to the scheduling changes we've recently experienced, the Grants process is happening later than normal. To make up for the delay, we will review applications on a rolling basis, granting funds as applications are received. Once an application is received and reviewed, the committee will contact you for a Zoom interview.
