Kindergarten Students benefit from Fuel for Schools Grant! Congratulations to Mrs. Cathy Jefferson who recently was the recipient of a Fuel for Schools grant. The grant is allowing Mrs. Jefferson's class to improve learning through movement! The grant helped purchase a reading program for the SmartBoard, "stepping stones" to promote reading, and iPads for students. The students are so excited to have these new learning tools!
