After the students and staff of CO Taylor Kirklane recently welcomed the new Walmart at Tenth and Congress Avenues as the school’s newest business partners they got a pleasant surprise. Marcellus Wils, co-manager of the store, presented the teachers and staff with 20 gift cards totaling $1,000 along with a $500 grant. Principal Agartha Gragg said the grant will be used to buy non-fiction paperback books . “ Mr. Wils also provided us with hundreds of boxes of colored pencils, pastel crayons, and over a thousand mini-journals—everyone around here is smiling.” Students also received a box top certificate worth 1,500 points or $150.00.
The gift cards will be used to purchase classroom materials for primary grade levels and supplies for scientific experiments. For details, contact Mrs. Gragg, 561.804-3500 or email@example.com
