Three Teachers receive Teacher and Classroom Mini-Grants
Three teachers at Weddington High received a very special surprise. They were awarded Teacher and Classroom Mini-Grants from the Union County Education Foundation. The Mini-Grant program allows Union County Public Schools system teachers to apply for grants for technological advancements, classroom enhancements and educational programs. The grants range from $100-$500.
This year the Foundation presented 40 teachers from 26 UCPS schools with grants worth more than $18,000.
Mrs. Sanders, our Agriculture teacher, received $500 to buy seeds and other agricultural supplies for her classes and FFA club. Ms. Frink, our Family and Consumer Science teacher, was awarded $350 to purchase groceries for her foods classes. She will also use some the money to donate WubbaNub pacifiers to local hospitals. Our math teacher, Mrs. Lalone, received $500 to purchase graphing calculators for students to use in their math classes.
