• Teachers and Principals,

    We are hopeful the Reidsville Area Foundation (RAF) Board will approve continued funding for GEM Grants during their spring 2017 meeting.  GEM Grants provide small ($250 - $500) grants for Rockingham County Schools' teachers.  We are very excited to continue this program in the 2017-18 year.  I am attaching a copy of the description of the GEM grant project and a link to the GEM (Going the Extra Mile) Grant application.  There will be two cycles, one in the fall and one in the spring.

    Jennifer Nixon (Reidsville Area Foundation), Dawn Charaba (Rockingham County Education Foundation), retired RCS principal Linda Bass, Dee Moyer (Student Health Coordinator-RCS) and Charles Perkins will serve as the grant review committee. 

    Please review the attached Grant Application Form and the GEM Grant Proposal information with your principal, as your principal has to agree to the grant proposal. All grants should be submitted via the online Google Form by the deadlines listed below.
