Aloha to the New School Year: Golf “Fore” Student Success

Plan now to play in the Fort Bend Education Foundation’s 14th annual Back to School Scramble golf tournament set for Monday, August 26th at Sweetwater Country Club.

Schlumberger is presenting the Back to School Scramble chaired by Claude Leatherwood and Rod Nelson.  Lunch is provided by Chick-fil-A, and an entry fee includes lunch, golf and cart, beverages, dinner reception and special gifts.  Foursome teams are $1,000 and individual entries are $275.

Over $312,000 was awarded in grants to teachers and schools for the 2013-2014 school year.  Since the Foundation’s inception in 1992, the Foundation has awarded nearly $4.1 million in grants to Fort Bend ISD teachers and schools to fund innovative teaching ideas.

The Education Foundation has partnered with the school district and created the Professional Development Grants program.  Fort Bend ISD teachers received the benefit of in-service training from nationally recognized education experts in such topics as classroom management, differentiated learning strategies and character development. The Fort Bend Education Foundation has also implemented additional programs such as New Teacher Grants, which provide teachers just beginning their teacher career a gift certificate to a local teachers’ supply store to help set up their classrooms.  All proceeds from the Back to School Scramble benefit the Fort Bend Education Foundation.
