Carroll Education Foundation of Southlake announces the awarding of the 2013 CISD Teacher Grants in their annual Prize Parade. Grants were given on Tuesday, October 29 in the annual Carroll Education Foundation Prize Parade.
Led by the Carroll Dragon Band Drumline, members of the CEF Board, Carroll ISD Administrators and various sponsors traveled together to each of the schools to deliver grants. Park Place Lexus of Grapevine, the 2013 Culinary Celebration title sponsor, has generously donated the use of cars for committee members to use. The cars featured “Carroll Education Foundation Prize Parade” door magnets as the convoy traveled from school to school.
Carroll Education Foundation, a foundation formed by community leaders to support the teachers and students of CISD, chose to fund 20 innovative grants this year totaling $74,979.44. Teachers apply for grants from CEF with innovative ideas that will enhance the learning experience of their students. Awarded grants for this year include subjects focusing on science, math, reading, music education, and special education programs throughout the district.
In September of this year, CEF held their annual fundraiser, The Culinary Celebration, which brought in $179,000 for the district. Proceeds from the fundraiser will go to fund teacher grants, scholarships for graduating CISD seniors and other CEF programs throughout the school year.
Since its inception in 1996, CEF has donated more than one million dollars in teacher grants and scholarships for graduating seniors.
