Welcome to the Because We Care Campaign
Together we will transform lives. Through this initiative, we are achieving excellence! The 2018 EMS ISD Employee Campaign will run from September 13, 2018 through October 25, 2018.
Every dollar raised will be used for employee scholarships or innovative teaching grants. Imagine the impact that we would have if every employee joined and participated. Teachers gain personal pride and satisfaction when they are able to fund innovation through their professional creativity. Students are more engaged and inspired to learn. This campaign makes it possible. Participation is key!
A Proven Difference
Teachers that have received our grants report:
- Increased level of student participation and interaction
- Students remain challenged and involved
- Students acquire new skills by learning in different formats
The EMS ISD Education Foundation Employee Scholarship Awards assist District staff in pursuit of college and specialty degrees, or certifications that will enhance their skills directly benefiting the students of our district.
