During the week of October 16th, TBA Credit Union awarded three classroom improvement grants for a total of $2,000 to local schools.
The grants were awarded to Long Lake Elementary School, Willow Hill Elementary School, and Buckley Community Schools.
The grant awarded to Long Lake Elementary was used to purchase English Language Learner classroom materials, including atlases, globes, and books. Willow Hill Elementary used their grant to purchase Cray-Pen Painting Tools, which recycle used crayons and give them a new use as paint. Lastly, Buckley Community Schools used their grant to purchase additional books for the Nerdy Book Club. The books are planned to become a part of a classroom library later on after the club has read them.
