The San Angelo Schools Scholarship Endowment Fund is funded primarily through payroll deductions of SAISD teachers. Awards are determined by a committee of the San Angelo Schools Foundation board and community volunteers. We are pleased to announce the addition of the Robert Price Memorial Scholarship.

The grants were as varied as the teachers and campuses. We gave money for products which will help upper elementary students gain greater skills in the appropriate use of grammar, mechanics, & word usage; money to improve teachers’ classrooms with updated materials such as biological specimens, Kindergarten workstations, listening stations, pressure cookers and induction pans, equipment for an anatomy dissection lab, a drone for one elementary campus’ Film Festival, and on & on. The subject of math instruction was equally equipped with math palettes, an app that engages students in activities for the practice and mastery of state standards while having fun, items needed to stretch design and construction muscles while problem solving and thinking creatively, and manipulatives that help students with a kinesthetic learning style. The board members are also aware of the need for and advantages of art and music. We awarded grants to help in these areas also with the purchase of a bass xylophone and classroom keyboards, as well as a Note Knacks project helping the students gain fundamentals of music theory, composition and math fractions. We helped with the purchase of sketchbook art journals and the materials needed for an enrichment program involving movement, dance and theater.
This is only the tip of what all was given to these imaginative and awesome teachers. If you would like to read the entire list, please email Debbi Meads at email@example.com.
We can’t do all this awesomeness alone. We want to thank the teachers, principals, staff and Administration for their generous donations to us.
