Extra for Extracurricular (E4E) Grants
The D103 PTO will begin accepting grant requests in September 2022 for extra-curricular programs within the D103 school community for the 2022-2023 school year. A limited amount of funds is available.
Proposals may be for equipment needs, start-up extra-curricular club expenses, and anything that enhances the extra-curricular lives of the children in D103. Requested funding must be broken down and detailed. While preference is given to proposals made by D103 staff that offer school-wide access to our students; parents and/or staff member sponsored students are also encouraged to submit proposals that will benefit extra-curricular program needs. Please be advised, however, that any new extracurricular club start up proposals submitted by a parent or staff-sponsored student needs prior approval by a District 103 school administrator before PTO can consider funding.
Requested funding must be detailed. The PTO Executive Committee will review requests during the school calendar year.
