Smithville Elementary named 2010 Spring Lowe's Grant Winner
Congratulations Smithville Elementary! Our school has been selected to receive a 2009-2010 Lowe's Toolbox for Education grant from the Lowe's Charitable and Educational Foundation (LCEF) in the amount of $5000.
Ms. Murray received a call in January from the Bastrop Lowe's about an opportunity to apply for the Lowe's Toolbox for Education Grant. A committee was formed to discuss the possibility of a beautification project and it quickly formed with many interested staff members. The committee decided to apply for the grant with the purpose of building an Outdoor Learning Center.
As you can see we applied for the grant and are excited about the second phone call we received notifying us that we won $5000. The committee will meet again to design the layout of the area and will begin recruiting interested volunteers to help see the project through.
