Funded applicants received up to $500 each and totaled over $26,000! Since 2012, TVFEE has awarded over $80,000 to Temecula educators. Formerly known as “mini grants,” curriculum support grants were available to educators in all TVUSD schools. Speaking on behalf of the district foundation, TVFEE Vice President Mark Katan congratulated teachers and principals. “We couldn’t be more proud to support educators whose passion and creativity make a difference in the classroom. Our mission is to enhance the teaching and learning experience for students through the donation of funds and resources from businesses and the community,” Mark commented. “We thank the community for its ongoing support.”
