As a 501c3 organzation, the District 51 Foundation (D51F) raises funds for academic growth and achievement while promoting outreach to benefit kids and our community.
We are so pleased to share with you that we now have a Grant Application for Principals and Teachers to apply for Professional Learning. We have two funding priorities this year: technology for students and professional learning for teachers. We will review applications two times a year and give away grants. The two deadlines are December 31 and July 31.
We want to thank everyone who attended our Superintendent Welcome! It was inspiring to hear each of the dignitaries talk about the importance of a strong public school system in Mesa County. We want to also thank Palisade Mayor Roger Granat, Grand Junction Mayor Rick Taggart, Fruita Mayor Lori Buck, and Mesa County Administrator Frank Whidden for speaking at our event.
Thank you to all of you who participated in our Teacher Appreciation Paper Doll Fundraiser. It was a huge success! The D51 Foundation is currently raising funds to purchase technology for students and professional development for our teachers. We appreciate your support and consideration especially in your estate planning.
