Every year, the Sherwood Education Foundation awards grants to individual teachers in the district who need help implementing innovative ideas in their classrooms. These grants fund everything from science equipment to marching-band instruments, webcams, P.E. equipment, math manipulatives, pottery kilns, and more.

“New research supports new best practices for learning; plus, kids learn in different ways. You’re always looking for more innovative ways to present information to kids. The Foundation encourages teachers to come up with new teaching ideas, because it gives us a way to proceed with them.”
– Lisa Miller, Physical Education Teacher, Edy Ridge Elementary School
“The Sherwood Education Foundation allows teachers to bring innovation into their classroom sometimes years earlier than would be possible through district funding. It’s a real gift to be a teacher in this community and be able to apply for grants to fund innovative teaching ideas.”
– Suzanne West, Eighth Grade Humanities Teacher, Laurel Ridge Elementary School
