Grant Award Recipient
Good news for Mrs. Reynolds and Nanny 3rd and 4th graders.  Due to her diligence and hard work, she was one of two recipients of a $2500 grant.  The funds will be used to purchase IPads and supplemental materials for her classroom.  Interested ATPE members should check the website next fall and apply for the grant.  Congratulations, Cynde. 

The following is an excerpt from the ATPE newsletter. 

“I had the opportunity to visit with Cydne Reynolds at Nanny Elementary in Riviera this past week.
