Carr Elementary School’s gymnasium is getting a facelift of sorts.
The school was recently chosen to receive a 2013 Lowe’s Toolbox for Education grant in the amount of $4,350 from the Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation for the 21st Century Community Gymnasium Project.
According to a letter from Joan E. Higginbotham, Lowe’s community relations director, Toolbox for Education grants are reserved for approved school improvement projects that can be completed within one year of grant receipt date. The funds can only be used for the specific project described in the online grant application that was recently submitted by Sondra Gibbs, Fulton Independent School’s Assistant Principal.
“The mission of the LCEF is to improve the communities we serve, and we are committed to having a positive impact on the lives of our customers, neighbors, and employees,” wrote Higginbotham.
Work has already begun in the Carr Elementary gymnasium with cleaning and painting under way so far. Plans are being made to reveal the completed project to students on the first day of school.
