It’s always exciting when a news reporter shows up with a giant check and that’s exactly what happened today (Friday, Feb. 8, 2019)! WNDU’s Tricia Sloma and Martin’s employee Chris Belakovich presented a $1,000 check as part of the “One School at a Time” program. 

 

One School at a time rewards schools that are seeking to find creative ways to improve learning with limited resources. Our PTO applied for the grant to support the “Family Book Club.”

 

With the funds received from WNDU and Martin’s the PTO will purchase 2-3 books for each family. Families will read the books together, one a month, and culminate in a celebration of reading trivia/social night.

 

Trivia questions will be on the content of the books. Books one and two have already been distributed. 

 

Watch WNDU tonight to see cheering students and our very own Kevin McMillen receive the giant check!

 

A big THANK YOU to our PTO for applying for the grant and making this project possible!
