On Thursday the 12th, the Sunrise Board voted to apply for a D5080 Express Grant to provide a classroom library for a new K-3 teacher in SD271.  We submitted a grant application to AG Jerry Sinn on Friday morning and by the late afternoon we had approval!  Yay!  The project budget is $500 with $150 from the club and $350 from the Express Grant.  We are partnering with "Opening Books, Opening Doors" and working with the Project Coordinator, Marie Nail from CdA2030.  The SD271 Adopt a Classroom project also offers us the opportunity to be "reading buddies" by listening to children read once a week.
