Teacher Stipend Programs:

Professional teaching staff who work directly with students full-time at Conn Elementary School and who join the PTA are eligible for the Teacher Stipend Program from the PTA. Classroom teachers, interventionists, special education teachers, and other student support teaching staff can submit up to $100 in receipts for reimbursement for any supplies purchased for the classroom - including, but not limited to, consumable supplies, classroom decor, storage solutions, teacher resources, apps, software and even professional development expenses. 

Special area teachers (i.e., Art, Dance, etc.) who join the PTA are eligible for the Teacher Specialist Stipend Program and eligible for reimbursement of up to $200, as it relates to their focus area.  

Reimbursements: 

How to spend or receive your money:
  1. Reimbursement: Download a check request form, attach all receipts and put in PTA lockbox in the mailroom or email forms & receipts to Colleen Boudreau at treasurer@connpta.org.
  2. Buy items at Stone's and specify Conn PTA (not Conn Elementary). Stone's will invoice the PTA directly.
  3. Send your Amazon wish list to Leanne at treasurer@connpta.org. Conn PTA will order your items (tax exempt) and have them shipped right to school.

Mini-Grant Application Scoring

The PTA mini-grant committee will review each application and two committee members will separately score each request with the rubric located on page 4 of the printable mini-grant application.
