Little Kanawha Area Community Foundation Supports Gilmer County Elementary School

 

The Little Kanawha Area Community Foundation (LKACF) recently awarded a $400 grant to Gilmer County Elementary School’s Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) to help purchase staff t-shirts that will help promote school unity and spirit. LKACF advisory board members Martha Haymaker and Bob Radabaugh attended the April 24 PTO meeting to present the grant.

 

The role of the Gilmer County Elementary School’s PTO is to build strong working relationships among parents, teachers and the school to maximize student’s experiences.  Having recently opened its doors for the first time, the new school’s PTO recognizes that now is the time to unify and celebrate.   

 

“The staff members really appreciate the unity the t-shirts have created,” said Shelly Mason, Assistant Principal and PTO member.  “Staff wear the t-shirts on Fridays and the students’ haven taken note.  Recently, a first grade student happily said, ‘All the teachers are dressed the same -- everyone is a twin!"

The Little Kanawha Area Community Foundation (LKACF) works with charitable individuals to make a positive and permanent commitment for the future of Wirt, Calhoun, and Gilmer counties in West Virginia.
