This school year the PGO Teacher Grant Program has awarded about 40 grants, ranging in amount from $60 to $1,000, all to benefit our students at ARHS. Items and activities supported include classroom materials and equipment, visiting writers, musicians and chefs, field trips, students' attendance at outside conferences, various extra-curricular programs and more.
Thanks to all of you who participated in the PGO's Stop & Shop card fundraiser, the only source of money for the PGO Teacher Grant Program. The fundraiser just ended for this school year and $21,344 was raised for ARHS! This amount is the top earner of all of the thousands of schools participating in New England!!
An enormous THANK YOU goes to Arnie Alper who has spearheaded this fundraiser for four years.
