Congratulations to the teachers receiving the classroom grants. Other teachers that are looking for a classroom grant should consider using the Adopt-A-Classroom program. By registering at www.AdoptAClassroom.org, teachers can use the pre-fabricated material to easily promote their classroom to contacts. When someone donates funds to the teacher 100% of it is passes through to the classroom and is also tax deductible. Classrooms in Rock Hill are listed here: http://www.adoptaclassroom.org/adoption/LocatorCity.aspx?State=SC&City=Rock%20Hill&Private=0&inter=0
