Travis Elementary recently received a $5,000 Lowe’s Toolbox for Education grant to fund a campus reading garden.
The Literacy Vegetable Garden project will provide students an area where they could enjoy the outdoors while they read books. Students will benefit from the garden in more ways than one. Along with having a beautiful place to read, they will also learn about gardening and nutrition.
“Our students, school, and community will greatly benefit from this grant,” said Beulah Rangel. “We wish to thank our friends at Lowe’s for generously supporting this important project”
The Lowes Charitable and Educational Foundation grants about $5 million to about 1,000 public schools in the United States each year through the Lowe’s Toolbox for Education program. Grants range from $2,000 and $10,000. The award money is to be used for improvements and renovations that help strengthen the school and the community.
All K-12 public schools in the United States are eligible for the Toolbox for Education program. More information is available at www.ToolboxforEducation.com.
