Grades & Grants Oct 4, 2015

Thank you so much to Franny Lou's Porch coffee shop in Kensington for hosting our first grant-writing workshop of the 2015-2016 school year, "Grades & Grants" on October 4, 2015.  

We enjoyed some delicious coffee and treats, while meeting with fellow teachers, getting some grading done and discussing innovative classroom ideas.

In the space of one afternoon, we drank some delicious coffee, met fellow teachers, learned about ways to fund our ideas for our classrooms and submitted grants for funding.  How easy is that?

Then, Meagan and Rachel from PhilaSoup's Proposals Committee walked us through how to fill out an application for a PhilaSoup micro-grant.

We started by answering the question, "What would you do with $200 for your classroom?"

Beth, a fourth grade teacher from Edwin Forrest Elementary in Mayfair said she would purchase science and geology equipment.

Using Beth's idea as an example. Meagan and Rachel helped us to fill out a complete PhilaSoup microgrant application - all in about thirty minutes!

Attendees then took time to complete their own micro-grant applications.
