Paragould Primary gets two grants and a donation

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - The Paragould Primary School received two grants and a donation for their students.

The first grant was a Lowe's Toolbox for Education grant for $4,490.

This grant along with a $2,650 donation from Greene County Wildlife will go to the school's Nature and Me Lab.

According to Principal Nick Jankoviak this lab helps give kids hands-on experience outside of the classroom.

The school also received a second grant which was a fresh fruit and veggies grant to help feed students healthier snacks.

Jankoviak said the grant allows $50-$75 per student to get the healthy snacks.

Jankoviak thanked three teachers, Shirley Pugh, Lisa Dachs and Betty Thompson, who helped write the grants.
