I'm hopeful that Jessie Beck School prevails in receiving this grant.  I have 2 granddaughters that attend Huffaker Elementary in Reno.  The district provides quality education for kids.

Thanks Kristin and Myrl ~ Our school systems ranks 50th amongst other states so this grant would really help out a lot. Yesterday Jessie Beck was 4th in the running, can't wait to see the end results.
