Apple for the Teacher Grants
This program is funded by our generous community and provides teachers up to $300 for supplies that would enrich their classrooms*. The grants are available to the first 50 teachers who apply, citing plans for how their grant will be used.
The grant amount is boosted this year in honor of Carole Dorshkind, the former WHS PTSA president who began the Apple for the Teacher program. Carole used the Communicat as a vehicle to ask for donations for teacher classroom needs and was very involved in supporting WHS including an after school peer tutoring program. Carole passed away in 2018 following a courageous battle with cancer. She is remembered as someone with "an extraordinary ability to connect with people. She was empathetic and could always see the world in someone else's shoes."
The program opens Aug. 14, 2019, and closes on Oct. 31, 2019, or once 50 slots have been filled, whichever comes first.
**The application form is no longer available for the 2019-2020 school year because all grant slots have been filled.**
