Ms. Tassin - Sharing and Caring for Perry ELC students: $1000 Donors Choose Grant Recipient
Tanya Tassin, Music Teacher at Perry ELC
She had a Donors Choose project that was funded in the fall. Because of that, combined with Perry's free and reduced lunch status, Donors Choose offered her the opportunity to apply for a $1000 grant for supplies for students at home to assist with learning during the pandemic. She received the grant and since she is a music teacher and the students didn't really need distance learning materials for her class, she split the $1000 between 4 classroom teachers at Perry. Chip Bennett, Debra Stevens, Pat Belvins, and Carrie Jones were all able to spend $250 in materials that they will deliver to their classroom.
