We are pleased to present the Curriculum Enrichment Grants for 2013-14

Each year the Pine Lake PTSA awards grant money to teachers and staff for curriculum and student educational support. These grants are made possible from the generous “Pass the Hat” donations the PTSA receives. Thank you to all of the families who donated to the PTSA and to all of the enthusiastic teachers who seek to add new enriching material to the classrooms for our students.
