Heatherwood PTA Awarded Grant to Engage Families in Technology Education

Our Kids Our Future

National PTA and Microsoft have awarded Heatherwood PTA with a $1,000 grant to engage families in technology education. Heatherwood PTA is one of only 35 local PTAs nationwide selected to receive a grant through the STEM + Families initiative. The grant recognizes Heatherwood PTA’s leadership and commitment to increasing access to STEM—particularly technology—experiences for Mill Creek children and families.

“We know—and decades of research proves—that families play a critical role in children’s academic success. We also know that parents and guardians have the biggest influence on a child’s educational and career decisions,” said Jim Accomando, president of National PTA. “Family engagement is essential to strengthen STEM education, bridge the STEM gap and help all children realize their fullest potential. We’re thrilled to empower Heatherwood PTA with resources to engage families in technology education.”
