Funding Boost For Local Elementary Schools

Nine local elementary schools are getting a bit of a financial boost thanks to the Windsor-Essex Community Foundation.

They are sharing in $5,350 through the KidStart Grant Program.

The program, done in partnership with the local Catholic and public school boards, gives up to $500 to support classrooms taking on special projects. The projects being supported include seniors programs, music engagement, environmental programs as well as support for at-risk populations.

The schools receiving the funding are Tecumseh Vista Academy, Prince  Edward Public School, Parkview Public School, AV Graham, Begley, St .Angela, St. Bernard, Hetherington and Coronation.
