A note from the PTSA President…

Greetings Culbreth families! Hope you’re surviving the weather whiplash we’ve been having. Welcome Spring! Back to Winter! And hello Spring again!

During all these weather changes, your PTSA has been hard at work. At our last meeting on February 5th, we reviewed and discussed several grant applications for our third of four review sessions. I am pleased to share the following grants that were approved for funding:

  • Sixth Grade Science Team: approved for $771 for a mobile planetarium visit from the Morehead Planetarium and Science Center.

  • Jessica Kelly, French teacher: approved for $500 to support a professional development trip to France

  • Helen Motta, 8th grade ELA teacher: approved for $100 to support professional development--board renewal boot camp

  • Monica Bintz, Principal: approved for $1200 for “Bring the Beast to Culbreth” Black History Month celebration

  • Mr. Nedimeyer, Band teacher: $500 funded by Special Orchestra grant donation received last month

We’re so pleased to be able to support teachers and staff with funding for their classroom activities and professional endeavors. And thanks to your generous support at the beginning of the year during the membership drive, as well as your financial contributions throughout the year, we’re able to provide these wonderful opportunities for Culbreth staff and students!

Looking ahead, there are some things coming up on the calendar and I hope you will be involved. At the March PTSA meeting, we will review the budget and talk about volunteer opportunities. During the April meeting, we will discuss the draft budget for next fiscal year. And at the May meeting, we will finalize the budget and review our fourth and final round of grant proposals.
