BOONE- Local 5 and Bankers Trust are excited to kick off another season of the One Classroom at a Time Grant. And Lincoln Elementary teacher Elly Boeckman wins our first $1000 check of the year.

Ms. Boeckman teaches kindergarten and first grade, and she has a lot of wiggly students. She wants to use her grant to buy special stools that allow kids to move around while they are learning. She says that can actually help them stay comfortable and focused much longer. 

We want to congratulate Lincoln Elementary. They also win a cultural workshop from CultureAll. You can find an application for the One Classroom at a Time Grant  here.
