Teacher Grants Help Satisfy Teacher Needs
|Johannesburg-Lewiston High School is part
of our Community Shares program benefiting
schools in the North.
In the past, grants have been used for a wide-range of ideas and projects. Some examples of teacher grants throughout the years have been for mindfulness training, book clubs, classroom libraries, 3D printers, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) resources, and even auto-shop classroom technology! By allowing school districts to allocate the funds, we are able to touch the lives of thousands of students through amazing and unique classroom programs.

For our Northern Michigan school districts, the Community Shares donation is usually made directly to the schools themselves. Manager of Community Relations, Natalie McLaughlin, works with Northern Michigan school superintendents to help allocate the donations—choosing where the funds are most needed each year.

grant funds to purchase books
for their Friend Book Club!
