Thank you to ScholarShare for sponsoring this post and letting us share this great program with you.
Education is at the top of my family’s priority list, as I’m sure it is for your family too. Unfortunately, too many schools are underfunded and don’t have the resources they need. ScholarShare is working to change that with their Scholar Dollars grant program. We shared a bit about the Scholar Dollars Grant Program with you last month (and hopefully you nominated your favorite school).
The Scholar Dollars is working to give 20 schools grants of up to $25,000 each to eligible K-8 public and charter schools in California. I can only imagine all the good that can be done with that money and I’m excited to see it put to use.
Vote for your Favorite School
Hopefully you nominated your favorite school. I was excited to see my favorite school in the list of leaders now that voting has started.
From March 1, 2017, through March 24, 2017, you can vote for your favorite school. Encourage your family, friends, neighbors, and PTA members to vote for your child’s school. Top voted schools in each category (according to school size) will receive a reward. Winners will be announced in early April.
As a mom of 6, making sure my kids get the education they need is so important to me. I want the schools they attend to have the resources they need so I love that the Scholar Dollars program is making it easier for schools to get the cash that they need. There’s so much good schools can do when they have the funding that they need. I have so much respect for the teachers in our community and all that they are doing to help my kids.
You can vote once per day so be sure and remember to vote and remind everyone in your community to vote too! Go here to vote and support your favorite school.
Getting the right academic is so important for kids. As parents, there is so much we can do at home, both to encourage their education and support our local schools.
