Kings Beach Elementary uses $5K grant to upgrade water fountains

Special to the Sun

Smiling students at Kings Beach Elementary stand in front of one of the new water fountains.

Kings Beach Elementary recently won a $5,000 grant from the Lowe's Toolbox for Education program.

The funds have been used to replace two existing water fountains. The new fountains also serve as water bottle fillers.

This is important as the school strives to continue to promote a green environment. The students are so excited.

Each year, Lowe's donates more than $5 million to more than 1,000 public schools. The Toolbox for Education grant is focused on projects that have a permanent impact such as facility enhancement (both indoor and outdoor) as well as landscaping/clean up type projects.
