The Nixon-Smiley Education Foundation awarded a total of $11,578.80 to teachers and students at all four NSCISD campuses today.
The Education Foundation has worked hard partnering with the community to enhance the quality of education for all students. By awarding multiple grants each year, the foundation provides opportunities for excellence in education and promotes innovation in teaching.
Thank you Nixon-Smiley Education Foundation for the opportunities that you give our students!

If you are looking for ways to give back to the children of our community, please contact Ann Pennell or Darby Clardy about what you can do to help. They are still taking donations for the silent auction, which will be at the Nixon-Smiley vs. Stockdale football game on October 19th.
