A workshop on “How to Write a Mini-Grant” will be presented by Gloria Gallegos on September 9 from 4 to 5 pm in the Administration Building Board Room. This is a foundation sponsored event and not considered staff development. It is highly encouraged for first time grant writers or those who have not had success in the past.

The Education Foundation awards mini-grants twice a year to educators for campus or classroom projects to enhance student success. Applications are scored by readers and then screened by a selection committee made up of foundation board members. Applications are accepted for up to $5000.00. Helpful guidelines can be found at the foundation website.

 Employee admittance to district athletic events:
All district employees should receive an identification (ID) badge from your school/department.  On the back, you should have a sticker that reads ’2015-2016.’  If you do not have the sticker on the back of your ID, please see the school secretary on your campus who handles the distribution of these stickers.
Your ID will allow YOU and a guest  free admission to athletic events in Pasadena ISD.  It is important that you have your ID with you or you will have to pay the regular admission price. If you have yet to receive your ID badge and would like to attend an upcoming competition, you may come by the ticket office at Phillips Field House and receive a one-time pass for that athletic event.  Please remember to bring with you a check stub to verify employment.
Out of town athletic events: Your ID badge/sticker will not be accepted at out of town venues for regular season or playoff games.  If you plan to attend an athletic event held at another facility other than a Pasadena ISD facility, you will need to purchase a ticket at the game or at the ticket office at Phillips Field House.
