Loma Vista Elementary second grade class has been chosen to receive a $2,000 grant from Walmart’s Community Grant Program to provide enrichment in education.
Walmart’s Community Grant is based off of the belief, “operating globally and giving back locally – creating impact in the neighborhoods where we live and work.”
The grant requires the school to be a title 1 school and the grant to be used in the area of education to provide enrichment for low income individuals and families. The grants that are given can range anywhere from $250 to $5,000 and facility managers and the grant administrators decide the amount awarded to each organization. Loma Vista was awarded $2,000.
The application for the grant was done by second grade teacher, Sarah Payne. The grant will be used toward field trips for the second grade class.
“This grant means we have more resources for our students, so they can attend more than one field trip without having to ask for donations,” Ms. Payne shared.
Although they have not yet decided exactly where they will go, Ms. Payne shared they are hoping to make a trip to the Natural History Museum. She said when she found out about receiving the grant she was very excited and knew her students would be too.
Congratulations Loma Vista 2nd graders!
