At a 3 p.m. ceremony Jan. 13, the Manatee Education Foundation will distribute CaSh for Cla$$room grants, which average about $500 per grant, to teachers of schools in the western portion of the county.
A second grant distribution ceremony for teachers in the East County will be held at 3 p.m., Jan. 20 at Braden River High School.
