Giving Tuesday for Inez Elementary
Posted 11/19/19

Inez Elementary Community School is partnering with Children's Choice to raise funds for our 5th Grade Scholarship Program.  Now in our third year, we continue to support students and families in their long-term educational goals by offering a $500 scholarship* to 5th grade graduates from Inez Elementary.  Call Children's Choice at 296-2880 to make a credit card donation.  Donations by check also accepted.  Questions may be directed to Rachelle Ford, Community School Coordinator 299-9010 x31710

*Number of scholarships available is dependent on funds contributed by community partners.  To be considered for the scholarship, 5th grade students submit an essay answering questions about their educational experiences and their hopes for their future.  Recipients of the scholarship will be chosen by members of a selection panel, including Inez teachers, Community School Advisory Team, members of the Snow Heights Neighborhood Community, and representatives from Inez Community School Partners.  Award monies will be designated for the student in a 529 College Savings Account (details of which will be shared with the family upon announcement of the award) and will be made available to the student following graduation from high school to be used for college, trade school, or vocational training (in accordance with 529 College Savings Account rules and regulations).  http://www.childrens-choice.org/
