NEF donates book to every Northwest ISD kindergarten student
Friday the 13th proved itself to be lucky for Northwest ISD educators. The Northwest ISD Education Foundation awarded $110,000 in teaching grants across the district!
As a fast growth district, NISD can face some challenges during the first few weeks of the school year with campus/classroom sizes and staffing needs. These challenges are no match for the amazing educators across the district, who always make sure "Kids Come First"! Last week, NEF supported six elementary teachers as they transferred to different campuses to relieve overcrowding in classrooms.
Ms. Bell received a NEF Teaching Grant in December 2018 for "Work SmartMusic, not HardMusic!". One goal of the grant was to encourage more practice time for middle school orchestra students. Check out their grant update to learn more!
NISD Board of Trustees passed a resolution reaffirming the trustees’ and district’s support of the Northwest ISD Education Foundation and its mission of raising funds for student scholarships and teacher grants.
