The Poland Schools Foundation for Educational Excellence has awarded more than $6,800 in classroom grants. The Foundation held a check presentation March 5 at Dobbins Elementary. Teachers who applied, and received the grants were at the presentation and talked about their projects.

"The Poland Schools Foundation is pleased to once again, award grants to teachers to help them further their instruction of our students," said Luke Politsky, President, Poland Schools Foundation for Educational Excellence. "In addition to the longstanding Mini-Grants program, the Foundation awarded the first grants from the Tickets for Technology Program, aimed at improving the student-to-device ratio within the school district."

The tickets for tech will help with robotics competition equipment at the high school and provide robotics sets for STEM students in seventh and eighth grades. With these funds, PSHS is now able to expand its Robotics competition program.
