Basketball Courts and SEARIC Grant
A huge thanks to Friends of Falun School, Ben Gingrich, and Dave Bunney. Through the support of all parents and community members, the basketball court/activity was poured last year. Many thanks to Ben Gingrich for donating his time and his skills to make the backboards. Dave Bunney kindly donated his welding skills to complete the project by welding the backboards to the posts. Last, but by no means least, a donation of soccer/basketballs for each grade were provided by Warnke Drilling! The students and staff at Falun School extend our greatest thanks to everyone involved. It is awesome to see the dedication and support of so many people interested in creating fantastic opportunities and experiences for our youth!
Once again, we have been blessed with another grant from the Society for the Education and Assistance of Rural Indian Children (SEARIC). We gratefully and graciously received our third donation in the amount of $5000.00 in March of this year. The funds allow us to continue to run the Breakfast Cart Program for the remainder of this school year and the 2016—2017 School Year as well. Stainless steel forks and spoons were also purchased from the funds and students will have the opportunity to use these in the breakfast program, Meals by Moms hot lunch days and regular lunch requirements where needed.
