The Sioux Falls Public Schools Education Foundation will be joining school districts around the country as they celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week May 4th—8th.
With a $25 donation, individuals can nominate their favorite teacher, or their child’s favorite teacher. The Education Foundation will recognize all nominees on social media, they will mail a handwritten card to the teacher, and every nominee will be entered to win a gift card from a local business. Individuals can use this link to nominate a teacher: https://sfpsef.kindful.com/?campaign=357333
Funds raised during Teacher Appreciation Week will support the Education Foundation’s grant programs for teachers. During the 2019-2020 school year, the Education Foundation awarded $100,000 in Public School Proud Grants to 49 educators throughout the Sioux Falls School District. Teachers have used funds to purchase microcomputers, programmable robotics kits, student newscasting equipment, science lab sensors and probes, specialized music instruments for students with disabilities, light tables, fitness trackers, sensory paths for social emotional learning, virtual reality glasses, GPS units, engine assembly/rebuilding equipment, and much more.
