REAF Grants Add Over $10,000 to Classrooms

Each year the Ranger Academic Enrichment Foundation provides grants to Perryton ISD teachers to help with projects that are not funded by the school district’s operating budget.  For the upcoming 2021-2022 school year the RAEF will provide over $10,000 to support education at Perryton High School, Perryton Junior High, and Wright Elementary.

$3,500 has been awarded to PHS Information Technology teacher David Erickson for Audio/Video Production equipment.  The Wizards of Technology Robotics program at Perryton Junior High, led by teacher Sandra Woods, will receive $2789.40 for it’s Buy-a-Bot project.

Lastly, a number of Wright Elementary teachers were awarded grants totaling $4280 to fund “Guided Math Bundles” for the classes of Cortney Winegarner, Jessica Pshigoda, Kendra Haberthur, Cinthia Medina, and Kaci Schwalk.

Teachers submit applications each year for their project ideas.  This year, all grant applications submitted by the May 1 deadline were fully funded.  In addition to funding these grants, the Ranger Academic Enrichment Foundation provides scholarships for seniors and administers the Pathways Program that provides a full two-year scholarship to Perryton High School students who chose to attend Frank Phillips College provided they maintain certain grade, attendance, and behavior standards throughout their four years at PHS.

Thank you to the Ranger Academic Enrichment Foundation for supporting the vision of PISD, Engage, Educate, Empower…Everyone, Every Day.
