TVFEE AWARDS MINI GRANTS TO TVUSD EDUCATORS


At the November 12 Temecula Valley Unified School District (TVUSD) Board


Meeting, the Temecula Valley Foundation for Excellence in Education (TVFEE) pre- sented 52 educators in the Temecula district with funds to support programs bene- fitting students at 21 schools. Called “mini grants,” the awards ranged in value from $50 - $500, and totaled


over $22,000. Open to all TVUSD schools, interested teachers submitted grant ap- plications in October, and a foundation subcommittee reviewed requests. Per TVFEE guidelines, monies must be used to support educational opportunities for students and must be spent by January 10, 2014. Speaking on behalf of the district foundation, TVFEE President Morris Myers


congratulated teachers and principals. “We couldn’t be more proud to support ed- ucators who truly make a difference for their students in Grades K-12. This is the third year our foundation has been able to fund grant requests. Interest has grown tremendously, and we wish we had the monies to fund all 181 requests. Unfortu- nately, our dollars are limited, and we had to focus on those applications we felt would have the biggest impact and, where possible, involved purchases that could be used more than once – ideally, for successive years. “Through community events, such as the 4th annual Taste of Temecula Valley,


on Saturday, April 26, 2014, and ongoing Summer School Enrichment Classes, we are able to fund arts, science, and technology programs. It’s important that parents, families, educators, and the general public understand that our foundation strives to enhance the learning experience for students across the district. We couldn’t do what we do without the backing of businesses, vendors, the school district, and individu- als, and we thank the community for its support,” he said. Among those recognized were: Cheryl Insua, Abby Reinke Elementary; Jennifer


Alexander, Erin Nielson, and Lynn Belleggie, Barnett Elementary; Amanda Siroky and Kathy McDonald, Bella Vista Middle; Leanna Bush and Susana Torres, Crowne Hill
