Fort Teachers Shannon Kirby and Angie Homan are excited for the students. They will be using Minecraft in the classroom to make history come alive as they discover, learn and build in their grant "Mining for Education".

The goal of our Education Foundation is to Energize, Enrich, and Enhance Education at Royse City ISD.  Teachers are continually looking for new ways to enrich their programs and engage their students to enhance and advance learning at Royse City Schools.  And that is the focus our Education Foundation.  What can we do as parents, community and business to make our district the best place for students to learn?  We can give them the funds needed to put these enrichment programs in place.

Grants provide teachers and students with resources to enrich and extend learning.  These resources would not be available through the regular school district budget.  The impact on learning has been tremendous in the last five years and the Foundation is excited about the future for Royse City ISD students and teachers! 

You can be a part of this enrichment - The Education Foundation Annual Fund Raising drive is underway now until December 15, 2014.  If you would like to be a part of the Education Foundation, supporting Royse City ISD teachers in creative and innovative learning please contact Jo Nell Mellody at 972.636-2413 or visit the Foundation web site at www.RCISDFoundation.com.
