Impacting Discovery and

Every year, teachers and staff can apply for a grant from the Pike Township
Educational Foundation. During the 2018/19 school year, 15 teachers across
every level (elementary, middle, and high school) were awarded grants
totaling more than $21,000.

This year, the PTEF received three grant requests which will provide
opportunities to the many students of all grade levels that are involved in
the VEX IQ Robotics program. At the high school, Chris Ludy received more
than $2000 to update their robotics kits and to add more members to the
high school team. At the middle and elementary school levels, Debbie
Huffine received more than $5700 to provide kits to each of the elementary
and middle schools, so that every student has the opportunity to participate
on a VEX IQ team. Finally, Sandra Baker received a $250 grant to help pay
for materials and parts so that the Guion Middle VEX IQ team could
compete at Worlds. Thanks to our generous donors, the VEX IQ Robotics
program is growing in Pike Township.

The PTEF scholarship program began with a $1,000 Hallmark of Excellence
scholarship and has since grown to at least 13 scholarship awarded from our

general fund, as well as at least 8 scholarships funded through private,
memorial, or honorary funds.

We were pleased to award $45,000 to the Class of 2019
