ONALASKA, Wis. - Community support continues to allow Onalaska Teachers to be innovative.
Around $9,000 in grants is being awarded to the teachers thanks to support from local foundations, businesses, and private donors.
They include a special music grant, and a project that will measure food waste in the cafeteria and have it composted and re-used in the schools garden.
Presenters say the grants help give our students the best experience possible. "We're all here because we feel that education is important and we feel that investing in our children is one of the best things we can do to build our community and make it the great place that it is," said the Co-President of the Onalaska Education Foundation Jeanne Halderson.
On top of giving out new grants, teachers who received money last year were invited to talk about their projects.
