Elementary School Donations
The Indian Springs Village Association (ISVA) is proud to once again support our local schools. The funds raised through ISVA events, such as the Taste of the Village in October, are used for scholarships to our Indian Springs high school seniors and donations to our neighborhood schools. A $500 donation was made to Glen Loch Elementary for library expansion of the bilingual and biography reading sections. Glen Loch Librarian Paige Wolf stated, “Students have asked, on numerous occasions, about biographies on current athletes and other people of interest.” With updated selections, students will be more enticed to read and learn about their heros and current leaders. An additional $500 donation was made to Galatas Elementary School for the enhancement of their literacy library that houses both fiction and non-fiction books on a variety of reading levels. Galatas Principal Denae Wilker writes, “Teachers are able to check-out sets of books from the library to read with their classes in small guided reading groups. The goal of the small group instruction is to provide differentiated teaching that supports students in developing reading proficiency.”
