DPSCD Parent Liaison, Victoria Boston-McNeely and the Carstens Academy family applied for this charitable Walmart Community grant back in September. On November 14, 2016 Carstens Academy received notice that they were awarded this prestigious award.
The grant will enable Carstens Academy to significantly help its students and community. One of the areas Carstens Academy will be helping its students will be by providing uniforms, coats, gloves, hats and boots for the upcoming Winter season. Carstens Academy will also use the grant to improve the buildings culture and climate. Lastly, Carstens Academy will also use some of the remaining funds on activities that will encourage academic and individual growth for the school and community.
Carstens Academy is extremely appreciative for this generous monetary token from Walmart and looks forward to the positive impact that it will have on the students and community! – submitted by Carstens staff –
