South Knoll teachers receive grants from the CSISD Education Foundation Several South Knoll teachers receive money from the CSISD Education Foundation on October 2, 2014.

From the CSISD web site:
“We are excited to provide the fruits of our fundraising labors to the hard-working teachers of our district,” said Education Foundation Board President Clayton Rhoades. “These special educators are awarded grants for projects that exemplify innovation and excellence in our schools and ultimately benefit children and their education process. After all, this is the underlying reason for our existence as a foundation.”

The grant patrol, consisting of Education Foundation board members, donors, and cheerleaders, mascots, and drum lines from both A&M Consolidated HS and College Station HS visited all CSISD campuses to award grants to this year’s winners. Each winning teacher was surprised with a check and cheering presenters to mark the occasion.
South Knoll Teacher Jennifer Sanchez wins scholarship from local non-profit

South Knoll Teacher Jennifer Sanchez wins scholarship from local non-profit From the CSISD web site:
South Knoll third grade teacher Jennifer Sanchez was recently awarded a $1,500 Suddenlink graduate school scholarship at a cultural event hosted by Fiestas Patrias Mexicanas, a local non-profit organization which supports higher education.

Sanchez is currently working towards her masters degree in curriculum and instruction at Texas A&M University. Upon graduation in May, she will enter a doctoral program focusing on Educational Psychology with an emphasis on the brain.

“I hope to discover ways to create sparks for students who are struggling,” says Sanchez. “So many students arrive in our classrooms that are not having those ‘aha’ moments that are so very rewarding to see as a teacher.”

Sanchez says the scholarship award will serve to help cover educational costs such as tuition, books, and a computer.

The award was only a small part of a two-day celebration hosted by Fiestas Patrias in order to instill culture and educate the community. Each year, the organization holds a parade and festival celebrating traditional Hispanic culture estimated to draw in approximately 25,000 people to the community
