GCCISD Education Foundation
Grant Surprise Patrol

With all the fanfare of a holiday parade, the Goose Creek CISD Education Foundation Grant Surprise Patrol traveled across the District recently awarding innovative teaching grants to 55 teachers. Education Foundation members, community members, District administrators, cheerleaders and a drum line exited yellow school buses, marching down hallways to the delight of the students, and stopping to surprise the winning teachers.

Since 2009, the Education Foundation has awarded more than $460,000 in grants. This year, more than $111,000 in grants was presented to teachers to enhance classroom instruction. Many creative ideas have become realities with the assistance of the Education Foundation, and the members love to see the grants in action. Although the teachers receive the grants, it is the students who reap the benefits.
