La Crosse, WI (WXOW) - Westby Elementary third graders can continue visiting their friends at the Norseland Nursing Home in Westby for arts and crafts thanks to the tools for schools award.
Lori Nestingen, the third graders' teacher, received $300 from S.S.E. Music, Honda Motorwerks, and WXOW News 19 through the Tools for Schools program.
The award will go toward purchasing art supplies for their nursing home visits.
Nesting said "we'd like to be able to do a crafts for all of the residents, not just the 17 we write to, and it gets really expensive. So this will be a really nice thing for us to continue the program and expand it and be able to do it all year long."
To apply for the tools for schools program, teachers can find more information on our website.
We help a teacher or class each month during the school year, starting again in the fall.
