• Fostering Excellence, Innovation and Leadership

2017 Grants Presented to Teachers

The Manassas City Public Schools Education Foundation had an exciting week last week! Members from the Board of Directors surprised teachers at Baldwin Elementary, Dean Elementary, Haydon Elementary, Metz Middle School, and Osbourn High School with a check that will fund innovative projects and programs.

The Education Foundation is proud to give over $56,000 to support robotics programs at all MCPS schools, engineering summer camps, new equipment that will support learning through movement at Baldwin Elementary, Bikeology for Fitness at Metz Middle School, expansion of the Eagle Writing Center at Osbourn High School.

The Foundation also contributed to the Haydon Running Club so students can complete a 5K in the spring.  Awarding teacher grants is always a rewarding experience for members of the Education Foundation as they work so hard to raise funds in order to give it back to teachers who want to create experiences for their students that will impact all areas of their lives.
