BGPS Libraries Benefit from Battle Ground Education Foundation Grants
May 21, 2015
The Battle Ground Education Foundation (BGEF) has awarded Battle Ground Public Schools an $8,000 grant to go towards the purchase of library materials. The grants were funded by BGEF in partnership with donations from Mill Creek Pub and Waste Connections, Inc.
The school district distributed the grant in $500 amounts to: Amboy Middle, Captain Strong Primary, Chief Umtuch Middle, Daybreak Primary and Middle, Glenwood Heights Primary, Laurin Middle, Maple Grove, Pleasant Valley Primary and Middle, Prairie High, Battle Ground High, River HomeLink, Tukes Valley Primary and Middle and Yacolt Primary schools. The funds will go towards the purchase of library materials such as books. Teacher-librarians will determine the content of the material, but it must serve the students.
Battle Ground Education Foundation was formed in 1994 to help cover the gap between public funding and the financial realities of educating children. BGEF is an all-volunteer organization serving approximately 13,000 students across 18 Battle Ground Schools. Donations can be sent to the foundation at P.O. Box 2574, Battle Ground, WA 98604; or contact Linda Gellings, BGEA Treasurer, at (360) 885-5381.
