Norwalk Elementary Parent Teacher Organization is excited to again offer grants to elementary teachers in the Norwalk School District. Due to our continued commitment to fundraising (through events and grants) and ongoing financial support from parents, teachers, and local businesses community members, we are able to offer two grant cycles during the 2018-2019 school year.
The Norwalk PTO Board of Directors served as the grant committee (any current teachers or staff members who serve as PTO Board members did not serve on this committee). In 2018-2019, up to $2,500 will be awarded to each school during each grant cycle.
