BEEF Awards Grants to Bixby Teachers
Every year the Bixby Educational Endowment Foundation (BEEF) awards teacher grants to Bixby’s teachers, following their mission to support innovative educational programs to stimulate thought and expand the existing curriculum. This school year, BEEF funded over $68,000 in teacher grants to Bixby’s teachers across all school campuses. Grants were awarded via BEEF’s “Grant Patrol” in November with BEEF board members, Superintendent Rob Miller, and Assistant Superintendent Lydia Wilson honoring teachers in their classrooms with an oversized check, a Payday candy bar, and the money to bring their grant to life!
Since its inception, BEEF has awarded more than $1.8 million in teacher grants and scholarships thanks to donations from Bixby’s community businesses and citizens through its annual Century Club campaign.
Donations to help provide future grants to promote excellence in learning across all of Bixby’s schools can be made online at tinyurl.com/bixbyBEEF, or for information on how to mail a donation and to see BEEF 2019 Teacher Grant Recipients, visit bixbyps.org/beef-foundation.
