The Pride in the Tiger Foundation has awarded $36,230 in Teacher Impact Grants in March bringing the yearly total for grants to $76,330.54. These grants are awarded to both public and private schools in Marshall.
Individuals within Marshall schools go through an application process, and those requests are reviewed by the Pride in the Tiger Foundation Teacher Impact Grant Committee, which makes a recommendation to the full PITF Board of Directors. Teacher Impact Grants are awarded twice a year, in October and March.
Some of the grants awarded included:
- STEM Expansion and Science Collaboration kits at Samuel Lutheran School.
- Omaha Enrichment Study and 9/11 Memorial virtual tour at Holy Redeemer School.
- Spelling blocks, phonics cards, and triangle flash cards at True Light School.
- Kindergarten Painting Party and Science of Reading materials at Park Side Elementary.
- Classroom Library books and LCD Writing Screens at Southview Elementary.
- PAES Lab and FACS equipment at Marshall Middle School.
- Turnitin subscription and Marching Band Prop Frames at Marshall High School.
- Fleet Pro Tools for the soon to open CTI Center.
- And Field Trips at every school.
“We are so grateful for the continued support of the Pride in the Tiger Foundation. These grant dollars help pay for things our budget doesn’t allow and provide so many opportunities for our educators to do even more in the classroom for our students,” said Marshall Public Schools Superintendent Jeremy Williams.
The Pride in the Tiger Foundation is a non-profit organization that seeks to provide financial and other support to activities and extraordinary educational programs supporting our children’s personal growth and development in their pursuit of excellence.
The Foundation will host its annual Scholarship Awards Ceremony at Marshall High School on May 17, 2023, starting at 7:00 pm. Graduating seniors will be awarded scholarships given by generous donors to further their education.
