Thank you, Williams for your support of our school and students.


Lowes

Purvis Upper Elementary Librarian, Teresa Sanford would like to say Thank You to Lowe’s for the Lowe’s Toolbox for Education Grant. Your generous donation of $4,000.00 has enabled us to build and create a wonderful display to enhance our student’s eagerness to learn and read. By renovating an unused wall, we are promoting reading by turning it into an AR reward display cabinet and technology center. We were also able to purchase five new chrome-books and $890.00 in new library books.

Thank you, Lowe’s for your support of our school and students.
