Grant Dollars for the School

Grant Dollars for the School

Some of you may have heard about all the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER) or the American Relief Plan (ARP) dollars the school is receiving.  Some of you may have heard that we are receiving USDA dollars for various building projects the school has committed to.  These are some amazing opportunities to invest in our school, but it can also be terribly confusing.
