Thank You 2017 PTSO Donors!

During the fall semester, your donations through the Farmers Market, Sport Clips, various corporate gifts, and our annual Coyote Canvas letter writing drive provided the funding for the Fall Mini-Grants Program. Thank you so much to all of our 2017 donors who helped us to raise the funds to support a variety of  grants which are being funded now for use during the second semester.

On December 4th, the PTSO Board met to review a record number of grant applications from 18 staff members. In total, there was over $15,000 in requests of which the PTSO was able to fund  $6,000 from our fall budget. These grants included:

– Math and Science tutors from University of Colorado who will provide one on one tutoring open to all students.

– Motivational speaker, Carlotta Lanier, one of the Little Rock Nine who will present to Social Studies students about the Civil Rights era in the United States

– New books for the MHS Library, French, and Language Arts classes

– 12 respiratory spirometers and molecular modeling kits for the science classrooms

– Publication of the MoHi Literary Magazine

– Smart technology (Wacom Tablet) to improve instruction for Math classes

– Upgraded technology, equipment, and resources for the Robotics Program

If  funding is available, there will be another round of mini-grants considered in the Spring. The PTSO hopes to fund some of the additional teacher requests in the next funding round.
