Pasadena ISD Prize Parade Grants $190,000 in Classroom Funds

The Pasadena ISD Education Foundation Prize Parade spread joy throughout the district as they marched down the hallways to the beat of the Rayburn drumline at 30 campuses to surprise teachers in their classrooms, Dec. 13.

Five teams comprised of Board of Trustees, community members, business representatives, district employees and students traveled to the campuses to hand out over $190,000 in classroom grants.

These grants will be used for classroom enhancements like iPads for education, 1-to-1 programs, kinesthetic equipment, musical devices, video broadcast equipment and more.

“The Pasadena ISD Education Foundation has provided over $1.8 million in mini-grants to educators in the district over the last 12 years,” Cindy Parmer, Director of Community Relations said. “The foundation board, made up of 35 committed members from business, industry and the community, combine efforts with the support of hundreds of generous donors to make dreams come true for our teachers and students. Seeing the teachers’ faces light up as a result of Prize Parade puts the fun in fundraising.”

Thanks to all of the generous sponsors and the Pasadena ISD Education Foundation for making this possible.
