I'm blogging today to notify central Indiana Jr. High teachers that they can apply for up to $500 dollars to help create meaningful hands on activities in their classrooms through McDonald's MAC grant program. McDonalds know the challenges teachers face to put together though provoking lesson plans with the budget cuts most schools are facing. The MAC grant program is in its 15th year and is a program for Central Indiana Middle School teachers in grade 6-8.
To apply for this grant visit www.McIndiana.com and submit the application online or by mail. Applications are due September 29th. Please note that your grant related activity must take place on school property and $500 is the maximum amount. All MAC grant recipients will be notified by Monday, November 24th. One teacher per county in Central Indiana is chosen to receive a MAC Grant, and at least 10 teachers from Marion County will be chosen.
Please feel free to pass this information on to your child's teacher if they meet the requirements. And to help spread the excitement of McDonalds helping local school they are sponsoring a giveaway on my blog. One lucky reader will win a McDonald’s branded backpack filled with McDonald’s goodies, 5 McDonald's "Be Our Guest" cards and a $25 Target card.
