Staff/Teacher Grants

For the 2018-2019 school year, the PTSA has budgeted a total of $7,000 for staff/teacher grants. Grant applications will be considered in two cycles: the "fall" application due date is November 1st; the "spring" application due date is Feb. 8th; grant applications will also be considered on an "ad hoc" basis if timeliness requires consideration outside of these timeframes.

To apply for a staff/teacher grant, download this FORM, fill it out and put in the PTSA box in the mailroom.

  • What are the LWHS PTSA Staff/Teacher Grants? The intent of this grant program is to provide an opportunity for staff members to request funding to support programs, equipment, or other activities that will help enhance the educational experience at LWHS. Here are some examples of grants that were approved in past years. (2013-2014 Grants, 2014-215 Teacher Grants, 2014-2015 Club Grants) We try over the course of the year to grant money to support different departments and to support different types of students. Sometimes we approve partial grants.
  • Our Grant Committee chair this year is Kathy Royal.  Please contact her at kroyal425@gmail.com with any questions!

ASB/Club Grants 

  • For the 2018-2019 school year the PTSA has budgeted a total of $2,500 for ASB/Club grants
  • What are these? ASB grants are funds donated to ASB/clubs to support their activities. It might be for supplies or equipment, or to help pay for activities.                                                                              See examples of grants given in the past. ASB/Club grants 2014-2015.
  • How do I apply for one? ASB grants can be applied for at any time, but as we have a finite amount of money, the earlier the better. It is the same form as the teacher grant form, just check off the "ASB grant" box. You do not need to get any signatures for these grants. We encourage you to involve your club students in the process.

$100 Teacher Grant

  • What is it? This is a "mini-grant" that teachers can use to spend on classroom supplies which will enhance their ability to educate. Go shopping, complete ONLY the top portion of our reimbursement form, attach your receipt(s) to the back of the form, place in the PTSA mailbox in the copy room, and get reimbursed for up to $100.
  • First-come, first-served! We currently have $5,000 budgeted for these grants, which past experience tells us should easily fund all requests. If the fund runs low, we will send out notification.
  • Can teachers request more than one mini-grant? Teachers must stay under $100 total, although reimbursement does not need to be requested all at one time. For example, you could request a $55 reimbursement in September and submit for another $40 in February.
