We are pleased to kick-off our first year of the mini-grant program funded by the PTA. Mini-Grants can be used to help fund special programs, projects, items, and/or events that benefit individual classes, grades, all students, teachers or the Blalack School Community.  Mini-grant awards can be requested for new materials for classrooms and school projects, programs, events, and school presentations. 

 

The PTA has approved $1,000 for mini-grant projects
for the 2019-2020 school year.

Applications will be accepted in two cycles (fall and winter) during the 2019-2020 school year. The full $1,000 is available now and all teachers and staff are eligible to apply.

Requests for smaller amounts are also encouraged.
