Teachers across Elizabethtown Independent Schools received welcome visitors bearing welcome gifts on Friday.
The Elizabethtown Education Foundation presented $25,000 worth of grants to EIS teachers, surprising teachers in their classroom with oversized checks and balloons. The grant money is used to fund various projects and buy supplies.
The amount given far surpasses what the foundation has been able to give in the past and the sum fits the foundation’s 25-year anniversary. Last year, the foundation raised between $7,000 to $8,000 to be used for grants.
