CO TAYLOR/KIRKLANE ELEMENTARY'S NEW BUSINESS PARTNER SHOWERS SCHOOL WITH GIFTS

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 agartha.gragg@palmbeachschools.org
