Target to Give Park View’s Elementary School $15,000 Grant

Recently, Target announced it had plans to invest more than $12 million to local schools across the country. The donations will impact 150 in-need schools and 75,000 students across the country through the 2012 Target School Library Makeover program.

According to a representative from Target that contacted me, the  Bruce-Monroe @ Park View Elementary School  will receive one of the $15,000 grants. The grant will help the school obtain Spanish-language books for their library.

In addition to Bruce-Monroe @ Park View, two other D.C.  area schools will also be receiving grants. The other two schools are Manor View Elementary and Garfield Elementary.

Lastly, Target will show its continued support of the Target School Library Makeover program’s previous library makeover recipients by donating $15,000 reading grants, for a total of $1.5 million, to more than 100 schools across the country. Target is committed to giving $1 billion for education by 2015.

    Whats the point of spending $15 k to buy spanish-language books? Why not teach the foreign-born kids to speak english instead? They can speak spanish at home. Cant this money be put to better use by Park View Elem? I hope there is someone policing how this money is spent. This is why many parents are taking their children out of Wash Public Schools and putting them in private and charter schools.

      It is a bilingual school, it has a dual-language program. Many of the students do not come from spanish-speaking homes. I’m saying this for the benefit of those who might read this and would actually want to know why spanish-language books are appropriate, not for those who would prefer to make ignorant comments.
