On January 27th, S.P.I.C.E. (Strengthening Parent Involvement In Children's
Education) Grants were awarded to twelve school PTAs in GCS. This grant grew out of a community planning effort by the Community
Foundation of Greater Greensboro and GCC of PTAs to help families and
communities improve education. Research shows that children perform
better in school if their parents are involved. Jointly recognizing the
significant impact of parent involvement, the two organizations have joined
together to promote the National PTA Standards for Family-School Partnerships. Here are the recipients of this years grants.
