Each spring the Alvin ISD Education Foundation loads up on buses with the district, business, and community leaders to surprise teachers throughout Alvin ISD with Innovative Teaching Grants. Many teachers apply for grants, but until Winners Wagon day they do not know if they have been selected by the Grants Committee. This day is filled with excitement as band members and mascots join in the fun. The Foundation works hard throughout the year to raise funds that allow us to give back to many teachers who have exciting ideas that they can now implement in their classrooms.
This year, due to COVID 19, the Foundation held a modified Winners Wagon with Foundation Board members took the grant checks, and individually visited campuses to deliver the good news! The Foundation funded ALL 81 grant applications for a total of $73,992 awarded!
