Ms. Parton, third grade teacher at Lincoln K-8, recently received a $1,000 grant from ABC HOI and CEFCU. The boys and girls were thrilled to be in on the fun of seeing their teacher win a large check. Some students were even interviewed for that evening's newscast.
Ms. Parton plans on using the money to buy books that feature African American and minority characters and authors. She would also like to purchase skin tone sets of crayons, markers, and colored pencils so each student can find a shade that they feel represents them.
Lincoln K-8 is grateful to ABC HOI and CEFCU for their financial support.
