Judi Chandlee Tribute to Teachers Grant Winners

On May 8, 2018, National Teacher Appreciation Day, more than $4,200 in classroom grants were awarded to Dubuque Community School District (DCSD) teachers through the Judi Chandlee Tribute to Teachers Grant Program. The gifts will provide much needed funding for supplies, equipment, and innovative educational experiences during the 2018-2019 school year.

The annual grant program is primarily funded by the family of Judi Chandlee, a beloved Eisenhower Elementary teacher, who passed away in 2011. Donations have also been received from private individuals, school district staff, and local businesses such as Premier Bank. 2018 Judi Chandlee Tribute to Teachers grants were awarded to the following:
