Creativity Grants

2016-17 Teacher Creativity Grants
Directions and Application Form Here
Deadline October 1st, 2016

The Westminster Public Schools Foundation provides Creativity Grants to advance the educational experiences of WPS students. The grants directly respond to specific classroom needs required to enable students to learn in unique and creative ways. Although funding is granted for many different programs, the most important criteria when selecting grant recipients is the impact it will have on student achievement.

Here are a few of the 2015-16 funded projects:
Over 80 students experienced AmeriTowne in Ms. Amy Eppolito’s class! AmeriTowne is an award-winning educational program offered to 4th and 5th grade teachers to help teach students about business, economics and free enterprise in a fun and hands on way.

Over at Colorado STEM Academy in Ms. Schreck’s classroom students used block printing materials to learn about Japanese Cultural Arts in conjunction with the primary classroom learning about oceans and coastal communities. The materials will also be used again next year in conjunction with the middle school social studies unit teaching about ancient China. This project allows students the ability to experience and create artwork from an unfamiliar culture and also provides much needed small motor skills by learning precise carving techniques.

“I am so thankful for your donation to my classroom project. It is so important for students to be able to learn about cultures around the world. Through this project I will be able to provide an experiential learning experience for my students. This art project will complement the project based learning in grade levels 3-8. Additionally, I will use the art supplies with my special education students as a sensory break from academics. Thank you so much for your generosity and commitment to support education through the arts.” Ms. Schreck
