Wellington Council Donates $400K

The School District of Palm Beach County appreciates the Village of Wellington for their contributions to Wellington Schools. During a recent meeting, the Village Council presented more than $36,000 to each of Wellington’s 11 schools, totaling $400,000. The grant is named in honor of late Binks Forest Elementary School principal Keely Spinelli.

“Many of us remember Keely Spinelli who was an outstanding principal. She worked tirelessly to help children reach their highest potential and this award continues to allow for her legacy to live on and to give back to the students in Wellington,” said Marcia Andrews, District 6 School Board Member.

Since its inception, the Council has awarded more than $2 million to Wellington schools. The funds are used to help students in the lower 25% who are struggling in reading and math.

“This grant program simply is a fundamental statement of who we are as a community. It is putting our money where our mouth is,” said John McGovern, a Wellington Councilman.
