Vice President of the Carlinville Lions Club, Dr. John Lapp, presented a donation check for $1,000 to the President of the Carlinville Public School Foundation, Jono Verticchio.
The Carlinville Public School Foundation is an organization dedicated to providing financial support to teachers and their mission to create a positive learning environment for all students attending Carlinville public schools K-12. Each year the foundation provides grants to teachers to purchase additional learning tools not covered by their normal budget. Last year the foundation awarded $35,000 to teachers through individual grants.
The Carlinville Public School Foundation will hold its annual chicken dinner on March 14 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tickets can be purchased directly from the schools, local businesses and individual board members.
