FOUNDATION AWARDS $95,516 IN 2019 THIEMS GRANTS

Foundation Board members visited schools the week of May 6th ringing bells and bringing balloons to surprise teachers with news that they have been awarded a Thiems Grant. These teachers have gone above and beyond to apply for funding that will enhance their classrooms and provide students with additional resources and learning experiences.  Grants will support students of all ages across all D205 sites.  Click here for a complete list of the 2019 grants.

Interested in serving as a Foundation Director?

The District 205 Foundation for Educational Excellence is looking for a few good men and women who would like to help make a difference for all students in District 205. What better way to give back to the community in which you are raising your children than to work with like-minded individuals to raise funds for innovative and supportive programs?

Board members serve a three-year term with renewal options and work with other dedicated volunteers in supporting educational programs, including the annual Thiems Grants and the Study Skills Program in place at all K-8 schools.
