Apple Seed & American Family Recipients 2022-2023

Congratulations to all of the deserving Apple Seed Grant winners! The St. Joseph School District Foundation awards the grants, ranging from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. The Foundation is a local non-profit foundation that supports learning in the SJSD. Funding is provided entirely through community donations. The Apple Seed Grants are awarded to teachers and staff who have innovative ideas that would directly affect students. The grants give schools the opportunity to explore new ideas in the classroom. We would like to extend a big thank you once again this year to American Family Insurance, who provides a large amount of the funding, which has greatly increased the number and amount of funds awarded.
