Olathe Public Schools Foundation News Releases
The Olathe Public Schools Foundation Classroom Grant program changes schools for the better, one program at a time.
This fall the Olathe Public Schools will help ensure that over 400 of our district's most vulnerable students have what they need to start school. The Back to School Community Outreach event in early August will provide students with practical needs like school supplies and pillows. Equally important, the event helps students experience the same back to school excitement as their peers.
Spending a steamy day on the links last week, more than 270 local golfers raised over $129,000 to directly benefit Olathe students and teachers as part of the 22nd Annual Olathe Public Schools Foundation Golf Classic. The Foundation partnered with Olathe Health to present the tournament and fund classroom grants and student mental health and wellness programs with the proceeds.
UPDATE: Thanks to generous donations and the MUFFIN Fund match, this Fund-a-Need is fully-funded.
Green Springs Elementary is working to prepare students for 21st Century jobs with a new innovation center designed to foster innovation and creativity. The renovated classroom space lets Gator Innovators explore a variety of open-ended materials, try endless possibilities, and imagine and design their own creations.
