Mini Grants

The PTA’s mission is to advocate in the community and before governmental organizations on behalf of the education, health, safety, and well-being of all children in schools.

To further this mission, the PTA has brought back the Mini Grant program for a seventh year. This year we have $5,000 to fund projects and purchases proposed by faculty, students, staff, and school community members aimed at benefiting students at Abernethy Elementary. These small grants are intended to enrich student experience, deepen learning, and enhance or differentiate classroom instruction.

Funds were provided last year for:

If you have an idea which you believe would benefit our Abernethy community, please let us know. Thank you for making Abernethy Elementary a great place to learn and grow.
