Rossiter received a $500 Grant

Rossiter received a $500 grant through MEA-MFT in support of our Conflict Manager Program.

The Montana Professional Teaching Foundation is pleased to announce its
first grant program for classroom assistance available to all Montana public
school employees. This grant program is named after one of Montana’s great
educators, Karen Cox, who lost her life doing what she loved, working to
improve education. She took seriously her opportunities to support her fellow
teachers, and therefore it is fitting that this grant program be named in her


The grant money will be spent on supplies for training day for next year’s conflict managers, as well as on supplies for our Healthy Snack Shack on Wednesday mornings before school.

The program came into existence at Rossiter this school year, thanks to the huge support of our parent council. This year’s conflict managers have also helped raise funds for future years at the Carnival Classic, by sales at parent/teacher conferences and through the Candy Cane Grams at Christmastime.

Thank you all for your support and kudos to the first-year conflict managers and mentors for all their efforts.
