Cooper PTO Teacher Grants at Work *
There are several of us that go to Lakeshore (Learning Materials) twice a year and shop for our classroom. It is nice to know that we are getting reimbursed for these expenditures.
The Cooper PTO Grant is put to great use for all the little things that add up such as: books, cooking projects, stickers, class reward incentives, new games from TPT and dollar store counters. I have used the PTO grant every year since they have been granted and am so appreciative of this gift to my students and me.
I have used it to purchase books, posters, toys, games, and other small items from our book fair and other stores for my end of the trimester auction. I have also used it for classroom supplies and pizza for our AR parties. The money has also been used to help with off setting the cost of field trips and class presentations on the California Missions and the Gold Rush.
The PTO grants have afforded me the opportunity to purchase art supplies for my class over the years.
Additional future goals are...
- Funding for the Cooper Garden
* In 2015 the average school teacher spent nearly $500 of their own money on classroom supplies and instructional materials.
