MISSION

The mission of the Moore Public Schools Foundation for Academic Excellence is to enhance, expand, and enrich students’ educational experiences through private donations and gifts.

OUR HISTORY

Academic excellence has always been the focus of the Moore Public Schools. In 1995, a group of thirty community leaders comprising a cross section of the community, established the Moore Public Schools Foundation for Academic Excellence. The foundation is a non profit, tax exempt organization. The Foundation members are dedicated to the belief that public education can be endowed in the same spirit as higher education, expressed through broad based local community support.

OUR SUPPORT

SUPPORT OF THE SCHOOL SYSTEM

The Foundation’s support for the school system comes predominantly in the form of grants awarded to innovative teachers. Every teacher in the Moore system is eligible to submit grant proposals. Such proposals are reviewed for their proposed curriculum enriching properties, and as many as funds allow are selected to receive stipends. Awarded grant funds may be used for:

  • MATERIALS AND SUPPLIES
  • SPECIALIZED NON-FUNDED EQUIPMENT
  • VISITING INSTRUCTORS OR SPEAKERS
  • FIELD TRIPS
  • ACADEMIC FAIRS
  • SUPPLEMENTAL PROGRAMS
  • OTHER EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES

Foundation members believe that teacher grants help turn good ideas into better educational opportunities for our children.

GOALS

ENHANCE ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE

We strive to assist in ways that help enhance academic excellence in the Moore schools by providing funding not available through public sources.

SUPPORT THE SCHOOL DISTRICT

We work to better inform the community about strengths and innovative programs of public schools while helping build public confidence in the schools system.

BRING THE COMMUNITY TO THE DISTRICT

We focus on encouraging community and business involvement in the public schools in a positive and supportive manner to include financial support.

Nubia Holland

As a product of Moore Public Schools and a graduate of the University of Central Oklahoma, Oklahoma education is important to Nubia. Her 10th grade English teacher helped instill in her a love of learning which helped Nubia decide a career path in education. Her teacher’s positive influence showed what a lasting influence teachers can have on students in their academic career. 

Before coming to the Foundation, Nubia worked as a Moore Public Schools Spanish teacher. She’s taught at Westmoore High School, Moore High School and Highland East Junior High. She brings more than just teaching experience to the Foundation, having worked as a professional in the advertising field in New York City for Procter and Gamble.

Now Nubia is the resource development coordinator for the Foundation, helping position the organization to support our Moore Public Schools teachers and students. She believes that investing and supporting our teachers empowers our students.

Besides working with the Foundation, she loves traveling, reading, laughing and most importantly being with her husband Bill and their three girls whom are all a product of Moore Public Schools.
