As many of you all are aware, PTA budgeted to fund $2400 worth of Star Grants. All Harrison staff are invited to apply for a Star Grant. Proposals may be academic or co-curricular programs, activities, and projects. It is an opportunity for staff to be creative. The Star Grants are then scored by a voluntary committee comprised of non-board members of PTA and Harrison Staff by using a rubric that primarily focuses on the extent to which Harrison students will benefit from the proposed project.
We are thrilled to inform you that we have decided to fund all 8 of the Star Grants that were submitted this year! Thank you for your participation and willingness to provide innovative programming for our students. We sincerely appreciate your hard work and dedication that makes Harrison such a wonderful school!
