The G-P Education Foundation visited all six (6) Gregory-Portland ISD schools on Friday, November 15, 2019, to surprise 20 G-P teachers with $13,753.65 in grant awards -- the FIRST-EVER (inaugural) grants awarded by the foundation! Programs will impact at least 1,705 G-P students this school year alone, and more in the years to come.
THANK YOU, DONORS! - Grants were made available thanks to our individual and private donors, as well as proceeds from the 2019 Teacher of the Year Banquet last May ... and a $5,000 gift from the Kiwanis Club of Portland (provided by the West Family / Dairy Queens of South Texas).
Will you help us REACH OUR GOAL -- 1,000 individual supporters in the G-P community giving $5 per month to the G-PEF? CLICK HERE to learn more ... Thank you!
