Teacher Grants - Fine Arts

To help ensure a vibrant future for fine arts education in the Minnetonka School District, the Minnetonka Alumni Association has committed to regularly fund annual Teacher Grants through the Minnetonka Schools Foundation. This will make possible extraordinary opportunities for Minnetonka teachers and students in the visual, performing and literary arts - opportunities beyond and separate from the schools’ normal operating budget.
