There were 62 applicants for this year’s Walton Education Foundation classroom grant project. Over $61,000 worth of items were requested. The Foundation selected 29 grants provided with private funds from CHELCO, Alys Beach Foundation, SunTrust Bank, Publix, and their annual Apple Classic 5K and 10K fundraiser, as well as matching funds from the Consortium of Florida Education Foundations.
We are excited to announce WHS teachers, Ms. Stephenson and Ms. Corales, were awarded one of these grants (for $1500), which allowed them to purchase 180 books for their classroom libraries.
Congratulations, Ms. Stephenson and Ms. Corales! We know your students are anxious to get their hands on these new books!
