Foundation awards nearly $55,000 in grants to teachers

The Roseville Area Schools Foundation awarded nearly $55,000 in grants to teachers for the 2019-2020 school year. The grants are funding amazing projects, including:

  • Pop-up culture shows.
  • Leadership training for students.
  • Makerspace and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) learning opportunities.
  • New books for classrooms to share absent narratives and encourage inclusiveness.
  • Flexible and collaborative seating to help students learn more effectively.

Anthony Larson, a science teacher at Roseville Area Middle School, received a $3,500 grant from the foundation to fund the robotics team at the school. Students designed a robot to enter in a competition, learning life skills through the process of building, programming and competing against other schools. The team recently attended a school board meeting to share about their experience winning first place at the Lakeville FIRST Tech Challenge Qualifier.

The teacher grants are making an immediate and significant impact on students in all of our schools. To learn more and read about all 29 grants, please visit
