NORWOOD, OH (FOX19) - Teachers from Williams Elementary were awarded funds from the Walmart Rewards Program to offset classroom expenses.
Reward cards worth $50 were given to 20 teachers on Wednesday from Sam's Club.
"The Norwood City School District has been designated by the Ohio Department of Education on the ODE Local School Report Card ranking as in the top 8% in annual student academic growth, ranking 66 out of 824 public, community and charter school districts. Teachers spend countless dollars each year to create a warm and inviting classroom that provides the needed materials to help move each kiddo forward. We at Williams Ave. Elementary appreciate and thank Sam's Club for their gracious support in our educational endeavors!
These funds come at a critical time, as many teachers will spend an estimated $500 of their own money to ensure their students have the supplies they need to learn throughout the school year.
