Elementary Schools Donation 2020

Dear Indian Springs Village Association Board,

On behalf of Glen Loch Elementary PTO, thank you so much for your generous donation to our school. We will use this money to provide funds for our librarian to purchase new books and resources for our students. For some of our students, the school library is their only regular access point for reading material and our collection is in great need of updating.  As a Title I school, raising funds is a challenge and having support from our community really means a lot.  

Thank you for making us a priority and for dedicating your resources to our campus. 

Sincerely,

Sarah Pounders

Glen Loch Elementary PTO President

 

 

Elementary School Donations

The Indian Springs Village Association (ISVA) is proud to support our outstanding public schools.  The funds raised through ISVA events, such as the Taste of the Village in October, are used for scholarships to our Indian Springs high school seniors and donations to our neighborhood schools. 

A $500 donation was made to Glen Loch Elementary for the accelerated reading program. Based on several reports on these programs, students have exhibited improved vocabulary and increased reading comprehension on a variety of books. An additional $500 donation was made to Galatas Elementary School, who has entered its second year as a CISD Literacy Cohort Campus, for the enhancement of their classroom libraries. Galatas Principal Denae Wilker writes, “Through community donations of gently used books we have made great strides, but we are still in need of additional titles to fill in the gaps.” With the donation from ISVA, those gaps are greatly diminished.

ISVA Donates to Local Schools

The Indian Springs Village Association is pleased to once again support our local schools.  Funds raised at village events, such as the Taste of the Village, are put back into our community through scholarships to our Indian Springs high school seniors and donations to our neighborhood schools.  A $750 donation was made to Galatas Elementary School for the purchase of fiction and non-fiction books for their kindergarten through fourth grade classrooms.  Galatas Principal Denae Wilker writes, “ These valuable instructional materials will enhance student learning and encourage a love of reading that will last a life time.”  An additional $750 donation was made to Glen Loch Elementary.  Indian Springs Village Association board member Michael Saucier presented the check to the Glen Loch PTO in February.

After understanding the need for funding to support STEM learning in Robotics, the Indian Springs Village Association was proud to contribute $500 to both the Mitchell Intermediate and Wilkerson Intermediate Robotics programs.  Mitchell science teacher and robotics coach Lori LeBouef writes, “We would like to expand our competition teams, but more importantly, provide robots for each science classroom to allow all Mitchell students the opportunity to develop STEM skills.”  Wilkerson science teacher and robotics coach Wendy Park plans to purchase a Lego Mindstorms kit, saying that, “it will benefit the students in the area of science, technology, and engineering.  We are working to find ways to showcase and share the materials now and in the future!”  We appreciate all the wonderful teachers and staff who work so hard for our students.
