Our Mission

The mission of the Lindale ISD Education Foundation is to create and sustain a visionary coalition of businesses and citizens generating investments and funding for innovative programs and initiatives that enrich and inspire educational and leadership opportunities that will benefit the students and teachers of Lindale ISD. Who We Are: The Lindale ISD Education Foundation provides a new and innovative source of funding to support the school district’s educational plan. The Foundation does not attempt to replace lost state funding, nor does it attempt to take the place of the district’s operating budget. When considering the level of funding required to educate students, the Foundation can expect only to provide funds for those projects and activities that go beyond the normal classroom experience. Such initiatives WILL provide enrichment, research opportunities, training, intervention and prevention strategies and extend the educational effort. Funds provided by the Foundation will directly benefit students in the Lindale Independent School District and will make a positive difference for them. Donations will remain in the school district and thus benefit the entire community through an investment in education and quality of life.

In placing an emphasis on creating a perpetual source of funding, a percent of all undesignated contributions will be set aside as an endowment. As this endowment grows, it will eventually provide a secure source of educational funds for funding programs from interest earned on invested capital, keeping the endowment intact. Remaining contributions will fund a variety of innovative programs and projects initiated by teachers and administrators at the campus and district levels. The Foundation’s plan calls for development of ongoing annual activities and projects that involve the entire community of staff, families, businesses and organizations to build a broader base of funding and a higher level of support for the school district. Ways to contribute include: Planned giving, Annual support, Endowment gifts Pledges, Gifts in-kind, Matched giving Memorials and tributes, Estate Planning

GRANT PATROL "Grant Patrol day is the day we, as Lindale ISD Education Foundation board members, administrators, teachers, and students look so forward to each spring,” said Lindale ISD Education Foundation Board President Vickie Frazier. “To work and invest in such a great cause is very rewarding, but to see the students' and teachers' faces when the band members, balloons, flowers, and BIG checks reach their doorway is amazing! We are also very thankful to our donors who make this possible every year." Spring 2016 projects receiving funds include: Equipping Everyone through Endless Engagement $4,093.76: Chemistry and physics have always been challenging courses but with advances in technology and the 1:1 iPad implementation we can also make it more engaging and efficient to collect real data that the students are creating. With LabQuest stream, students can wirelessly collect and stream data from multiple sensors to an iPad and collaborate and share data with others in the classroom. They will be able to select data, create graphs, make predictions, deeply analyze data and draw conclusions based on real-time evidence. Osmo-sis in Kindergarten $4,544.40: Students acquire knowledge in multiple ways; auditorilly, visually, kinesthetically, and reading/writing. To meet the needs of all students, the approach taken to teach a skill should be varied as well. The iPad is an excellent method of delivery for most learning styles. However, it does harbor a slight level of passivity. Osmo’s advanced technology bridges that gap between the real and digital realms by providing an interactive, hands on experience. Osmo is an educational accessory for an iPad that connects student’s physical manipulation of objects to the world of technology. May The "Spark" Be With You $4,998.27: The implementation of the SPARK (Sports, Play, Activity, and Recreation for Kids) curriculum at the EJ Moss (grades 4-6) will immediately help our school improve both of the campus PE programs and help meet the needs of our students at appropriate age levels. This program is a research based curriculum that encourages maximum participation during class time in a non-threatening atmosphere. Improving physical skills, fitness, social development and having fun are all areas addressed by the SPARK curriculum. The SPARK program offers training for physical education staff and the acquisition of adequate equipment. It includes the creation of personal wellness programs where students can track their own fitness progress. The intended outcome will be for students to meet and exceed FITNESSGRAM standards and to be educated about physical fitness and understand how to plan and maintain their own personal wellness program incorporating these activities into their lives. Keeping Up with the 5A: Computing in Speech and Debate $4,140.93:The speech and debate world has gone through a “green movement” with so many events resorting to the use of computers. However, many students do not have the means to provide their own laptop devices. As our team grows and expands it has been increasingly difficult to equip our students with the technology that they need to be competitive with larger schools with higher socioeconomic status (or schools that maintain a one to one laptop program). The goal of this project would be to help equalize our competitive playing field both in and out of the classroom.

GRANT PATROL Technology for Diverse Learners $3,716.11: Learning comes in many different styles. The goal is to deliver lessons in different ways targeting the diverse learners. One way in achieving this goal is through the use of the Smartboard technology in the classroom to help engage the visual and kinesthetic learners, and with the use of the auditory amplification system to help and assist the auditory learners. Having both of these items in the classroom will assist in working towards the common goal of reaching, engaging, and teaching the multi-diverse learning styles of students. Expanding their World through Language Learning $1,489.50: The acquisition of a second language is becoming an increasingly important and valuable skill in the world we live in today. The four communication skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing are the essential components for the effective study, acquisition and mastery of a second language. A valuable tool wherein all students are able to practice these essential skills is an interactive and personalized fashion. The modern language labs serve as a tool that empowers teachers to orchestrate those activities to all students. In order to provide the opportunity to teach the components of language acquisition, it is necessary to purchase and utilize language lab headsets in order to maximize the usefulness of the peripherals of computers, tablets, and other devices already available for student use by transforming them into a modern language lab. To Infinity and Beyond…with SKYPE! $816.06: “To infinity and beyond!” Imagine a limitless classroom where the teacher doesn’t have to be the typical instructor that stands in front of the class and gives the daily lesson but where the students can interact with anybody in the world pertaining to whatever the topic is at hand. No boundaries! One could chat with a FEMA Representative about the latest natural disaster in the United States or ask Chuck Hill how he invented 3D printing or even team up with another GT class to complete a project globally….the possibilities are endless! All any teacher would need is a webcam and a SKYPE connection, and you can turn your classroom into a unique learning environment. What an AWESOME day at school that would be! The Growing Ocean: Expanding Sea Floor Spreading $4,783.32: The concept of seafloor spreading, including the idea of magnetic reversals in the rock record, is a difficult one for students to grasp, but it is a vital portion of plate tectonic theory. The purpose of The Growing Ocean: Explaining Sea Floor Spreading is to provide students with a hands on activity to improve students’ understanding of this concept. They will be able to collect real time data through the use of the Vernier LabQuest and Magnetic Field Probe. This will allow them to see how magnetic fields can reverse and apply it to the real world. Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead: EJ Moss Touch Screen Science, Technology, Engineering & Art Station $4,056.00: Being Renaissance-minded, it is time to connect the math and sciences to creative processes. The cozy Art Rooms of E. J. Moss need highly engaging, hands on technology experiences using a large touch screen monitor up safe above our tables with paints and art supplies using the S. T. E. A. M (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math – the STEM subjects, plus Art and Design) approach. This movement first proposed by Rhode Island School of Design and is currently embraced by many institutions, corporations and individuals, and industry leaders. E. J. M. S.T. E. A. M. Station will integrate collaborative activities with each art lesson.
