Teacher Awarded $250 Grant from Scholastic

 Walter books


Congratulations to Mrs. Kara Walter, first grade teacher at Highlands Elementary School, who won a $250 mini grant through the Patterson Partnership / Scholastic Sweepstakes Essay Contest.


For the past five years, author James Patterson and Scholastic Book Clubs have teamed up to bring books into classrooms throughout the country. The sweepstakes awarded $250 and 250 Bonus Points to Teachers (4 or more years of experience) and $500 and 500 Bonus Points to New Teachers (0 to 3 years of experience).


Mrs. Walter and her students are excited about the opportunity to improve the classroom library with new books from Scholastic!
