Mini-Grant Awards

The Fireside Mini-Grant Program provides enrichment opportunities for students across grade levels or the entire student body. All teachers are encouraged to submit. Submitted proposals must be approved by the leadership team composed of one teacher from each grade level, before being approved by the PTO.
