WHAT WE DO
Funding Requests are awarded to teachers, administrators, and schools. Often times teachers from multiple schools will collaboratively submit a funding request. Any full-time Maryville City School District teacher or administrator is eligible to submit an application requesting partial or full project funding. Funding requests are reviewed by committee each month with recommendations made at the upcoming board of directors' meeting.
Math Versa Tiles Kits
Impact: 600 students & 28 teachers
This request is from John Sevier Elementary. This is a school request, and kits would be purchased for all grade levels (K-3) – seven per grade level, for a total of 28 kits. These kits allow a screen-free way for teachers to differentiate instruction for the wide range of skill levels in math, can be used in small groups or as independent work, and training would be provided by teachers already familiar with them to teachers using them for the first time. They have already used Versa Tiles in their summer program and the teachers loved them.
The Maryville City Schools Foundation's Children's Fund raises money to provide for the needs of economically disadvantaged students in Maryville City Schools. The Children's Fund provides for more than 550 children annually to help them with items and services necessary for them to excel in the classroom environment. These families are given hope and support to help with the "little things" that many of us take for granted.
Donations made to the MCSF Children's Fund provide shoes, seasonally appropriate clothing, eye exams, eyeglasses, nourishment, aid in utility assistance, and other necessary services. Maryville City Schools' Family Resource Center uses the fund to help students succeed in school by capitalizing on their strengths, learning new skills, and connecting families with community resources in ways that support emotional, social, and academic needs. All donations to the MCSF Children's Fund are tax-deductible.
