$50,000 can go a long way for teachers and students.

The Bellevue Public Schools Foundation spent Thursday awarding grants to teachers for projects and resources needed for their curriculum, something it's done for several years.

But this year, it decided to pay them a visit with Bellevue East High School being the first stop of many in the district.

"It just energizes the teachers to know that they have support - that they have another arm for support that we care about what they're doing," said Scott Eby, a foundation member and district board member.

Some of the grants will be used for items like instruments, flexible seating, pedometers and activities involving social and emotional learning.
