Fall Matador funding requests due
Mar 8 all-day

Matador funds are potentially available for any parent, teacher, or staff member looking for financial support from the PTO for projects that directly advance the school’s strategic plan.

Applications should provide as much background information about the project’s needs and how it will benefit the school, why the PTO should fund this (as opposed to other funding sources) and  cost data about the products needed to execute their plan.

Applications for Matador fund requests are reviewed and voted upon by the Matador Fund Committee – made up of the executive principal, 2 additional teacher, the PTO president and treasurer, and selected parent representatives. Proposed projects are reviewed based on merit and impact to the school as a whole.  (Note that the acceptance and review of requests is dependent on PTO monies being available.)

Application forms are available HERE

The school’s strategic plan is available HERE
