The Greenwood Education Foundation recently awarded five grants to teachers within the Greenwood School District. The Foundation accepts gifts and memorials from individuals and corporations each year and grants the application requests for activities and resources that go “above and beyond” what is already happening in the classroom. The purpose of the grants is to encourage teachers to be creative and innovative in their teaching so that the student learning will be enhanced beyond what is funded through the annual budget of the school system.
