Donation of Nearly $20,000 Will go Toward Smartboards
Maple Grove's Students, Parents and Teachers Organization raised the money through various fundraisers.
Earlier this month, the Greenfield School Board accepted a donation of $11,257 from the Maple Grove Elementary School’s Students, Parents and Teachers Organization.
Turns out the SPTO wasn’t quite done.
On Monday, the Board accepted an additional $7,979, for a grand total of $19,236. The money will be used to purchase several smartboards for the school’s classrooms.
“Our plan is have a smartboard in each grade level,” assistant superintendent Todd Bugnacki said.
According to SPTO vice president Tracy Jendrzejek, the organization participated in six or seven different fundraisers, including pizza and movie ticket sales and a donation jar.
“We really wanted to do a push this year to get (smartboards) in the classroom so they were there for our students,” Jendrzejek said. “So we did a couple extra fundraisers … and we had a lot of parents step up. We have a really great group of parents.”
Said Board member Pam Sierzchulski: “I think it’s really good to see this kind of involvement in a very positive way. It’s a good reflection of that school.”
