BELVIDERE (WIFR) -- Meehan Elementary School in Belvidere has been awarded a $500 grant from the Exxon/Mobil Education Alliance program to support the school’s math and science programs.
“Meehan Elementary School works very hard to make learning interesting and challenging for all students”, said Tony Dal Pra. “We are proud to help the young people of the Belvidere community by giving this grant money to be used for math or science.”
The school plans to use the grant funds for classroom materials, professional development, supplies for its annual science fair, and for a science-related school assembly.
Kelly Williamson Co., the local Exxon/Mobil distributor, and Dal Pra’s Belvidere Mobile worked together to secure the grant. Meehan Elementary School is one of 4,000 schools across the country to receive the funds.
Presentation of the check will take place on Thursday, February 7 at 1:30 p.m.
