Innovative Teacher Grants

The Sumner-Bonney Lake Education Foundation is expanding beyond scholarships to teaching grants for the teachers, principals, and staff members of the Sumner-Bonney Lake School District. We recognize that budgets can be stretched thin when trying to provide all the necessary tools and resources to make for a successful learning environment, and that is why we wanted to step in and help out.


To kick this program off we received a generous $5,000.00 grant from the Haggen’s Foundation.  We are looking forward to all the innovative teaching ideas you guys come up with! Grants will be award in amounts up to $1,000.00 per project….no project is too small!
