I’m pleased to announce that the first recipient of the Top School Fundraisers grant program is Fuller GT Magnet Elementary in Raleigh, NC. The fifth grade class is planning their first school trip to Washington, D.C. They have been doing fundraising all year in order go on this trip. They’ve had a movie night, sold donuts, sold coupon books and even Jim’s favorite, the bake sale.

Parent volunteer Julie Henry, who also works for the local NBC station, helped students create this video:

This Top School Fundraisers grant in the amount of $2000 will provide scholarships to students, so that every child in the class will be able to go on this trip. Congratulations fifth graders and have a wonderful time in DC!
