Sheldon Education Foundation awards $16,000 to new Sheldon teachers

In August, new teachers to the school district had an opportunity to apply for an innovative teaching grant from the Education Foundation. Awarded grants included programs for flexible seating, musical instruments like ukuleles, as well as technical programs to help students in fine arts, math, science and more. 

The Education Foundation is a non-profit organization that exists to raise funds for teachers and students in Sheldon ISD. Each year, the Foundation funds innovative teaching grants to teachers who apply during the grant process. To learn how to get involved, call 281-727-2033 or go to
