Teacher Wins Scholastic Book Fairs® Grant

Charles Ritter and Beth Klomp presented Kristin Fricke of Ross Park Elementary in Norton Shores with a $100 Scholastic Book Fairs® grant from The Meemic Foundation. The money can be spent at Scholastic Book Fairs at schools or online. Winners are encouraged to take a selfie with their book haul and post it on social media with the hashtag #meemicpossible.

Kristin also won a traditional Meemic Foundation grant, which will go for “Innovative Interventions,” a plethora of learning tools for students to use in both individual and small group instruction to help increase their language arts knowledge, skills and application in her kindergarten classroom.

In addition, Laurie Toney and Beth Klomp presented grants to Jeannie Skoglund and Jennifer Hekkema of Lakeside Elementary.
