The Greater Raleigh Court Civic League along with Superintendent Rita Bishop made a surprise check presentation of ,000 to Fishburn Park Library Media Specialist Lynn Pagans.
Pagans received the money to purchase environmentally focused books for the library as part of the GRCCL pilot classroom grant program. The grant application was open to Greater Raleigh Court area elementary school teachers from Wasena, Highland Park, Virginia Heights, Grandin Court and Fishburn Park to help fund creative and educational classroom activities.
Fishburn Park Elementary School is a focus school which strives to establish a strong foundation for academic success for all students while fostering environmental stewardship. Fishburn Park will soon be accepting applications for students to be enrolled in their environmental focus program during the 2012-2013 school year.
