Yesterday, we listed a brief summary of our Spring 2013 Grants that we recently funded.
Today, we would like to take a moment and thank all those who made funding grants possible. THANK YOU to everyone who has donated their time, effort and money in this great endeavor working for our Middletown students. Without your work, vision and generosity, none of this would be possible.
