Kate Sampson

The District 205 Foundation Directors added to the excitement of this year’s Teacher Appreciation Week by paying surprise visits to extraordinary teachers who were awarded the Thiems Educational Grants they had applied for last semester. Every K-12 school benefited from a total of $95,516 funded grants that will be implemented next academic year.  

Grant requests for elementary digital crayons and 3D printers were extended across schools to ensure that every elementary building has these resources for students. Two middle school grants in PE and science were also given to all three middle school buildings to provide equal opportunities for students.
