ELROY, Wis. (WXOW) - The kindergarten class at Royall Elementary School is the May winner of the Tools For Schools award.
Kelsey Matherne's class is the recipient of a $500 award from WXOW, SSE Music, and Brenengen Auto.
Matherne said she'll put the money towards new materials for the kindergarten's Study Skill program which encourages independent problem solving. "It reinforces all of the skills: Numbering, lettering, sounds, spelling, writing, sequencing-reinforcing everything we are learning," she said during the awards ceremony.
Each month during the school year, the Tools For Schools program helps one deserving teacher or class.
