All WJHSD teachers may apply for a grant for school-related projects that are consistent with the curriculum and goals established by the district. Grants may be used for educational materials and supplies, classroom equipment, or other expenses that support educational activities. Any materials purchased through the grant become the property of the district.

The grants are provided from fundraising and donations made to the WJH Foundation for Education. During the past six months, the Foundation has sold school blankets, cornhole games, holiday flowers and TJ lapel pins. The Foundation also hosted a highly successful ice cream social in August at Thomas Jefferson High School. A Bingo Night is planned for Saturday, May 4 at the Triumph of the Holy Cross Parish – St. Elizabeth gymnasium.

Among some of the purchases and projects by WJHSD staff from this year’s grants are:

  • Three CKLA curriculum projects;
  • The Pleasant Hills Middle School Outreach program, which includes providing blessing bags with toiletries for a homeless shelter and Police Appreciation bags for local law enforcement;
  • Environmental Science lab project
  • 3D printer
  • PAES lab stove project

All grant applications were required to be reviewed and signed by the appropriate building principal. The applications were reviewed by WJHSD administration with final decisions made by the WJHSD Foundation Board.

All of the grant recipients are required to submit a written report and photographs by May 31, 2024, of the grant project’s process or completion, including the number of students positively impacted.
