2014 GRANT AWARD RECIPIENTS

PAINTED SKY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PTO
2nd Year Funding

Agency Background: The PTO was established in 2000 to promote positive relations and partnerships in the Painted Sky community, coordinate programs that enhance the quality of education and raise funds not provided by the Amphitheater District for education excellence. Faced with budget cuts, teacher lay-offs and increased class sizes, the PTO was concerned that struggling third graders would fail the reading portion of the AIMS test and therefore not be promoted to fourth grade. Community volunteers and parents were trained as tutors and teachers referred failing students to the new tutoring program named the Thunderbird Resource Center.

Focus of the 2014 SCCF Grant: Thunderbird Resource Center Tutoring Program and Book Nook Teaching Library: With SCCF funding the TRC will be able to coordinate programs that enhance the quality of education and raise funds not provided by the Amphitheater District for education excellence.
