The annual Albany Public Schools Foundation grant application window is open. Teachers can apply for a classroom grant for the 2018-19 school year.
Applications are due on Oct. 15 and are available online at https://goo.gl/forms/vGGDEtEFcUVeKo2h1
Priority is given to requests in the areas of art, music, STEM, and health and wellness. Teachers who received a grant from the foundation during the previous year must submit an evaluation before being considered for a new grant.
Last year, the foundation awarded $37,683 in classroom grants for programs, projects and materials. Grants are funded by the three Albany Public School Foundation events: iSwim for Kids, iCelebrate Kids Benefit Gala and the iRun for Kids race.
Students at South Albany High school recently selected “RedHawks” as the name of the school mascot. The high school asked students for nominations, investigated the ones with the most nominations, and then put them up for a vote.
The students overwhelmingly selected “RedHawks.” The colors will remain red and grey with accents in black.
Acting superintendent Tonja Everest told the School Board at its June 4 meeting that the estimated cost to replace the “Rebel” name and logo on the gym floor, football end zone, and purchase new team uniforms was estimated at $114,000. The Albany Public Schools Foundation and the South Albany High School Sports Foundation are accepting donations.
