LPAA Mini Grants
2016-17 Mini Grant AwardsThe Lewiston-Porter Alumni Association awards grants up to $500 to staff to purchase materials and/or programs that enhance classroom instruction. The teachers/staff fill out a brief application which is reviewed by the Mini Grant Committtee composed of Nancy Orsi, Chairperson; Bruce Newton, Alumni President; Peggy Shear: Judy Jarvis and Bill Falkner. The Committee rates and discusses the requests and then they are ranked with the grants awarded until we have used the allocated money.The Lewiston-Porter Alumni Association is pleased to announce the winners of the Teacher Mini Grants for the 2016-2017 school year.
