Tools for Schools grant to purchase ice skates for student use

Posted:

Eau Claire (WQOW) - A classroom grant will benefit Eau Claire students outside of the classroom.

On Wednesday, Sam Davey Elementary received a $500 Tools for Schools grant. Tools for Schools is a partnership between Eau Claire's Own News 18, Royal Credit Union and Fired Up Pizza.

True Vang, the school's phys. ed. teacher, applied for the award. The money will be used to buy ice skates so more kids can take advantage of the rink outside the school.

Vang says, "Just giving them a different perspective on how to stay active during the winter months, and skating certainly brought that light up, it definitely gave a new sense of joy to the kids. Just the friendship piece, teaching each other how to skate, being around their friends, that's just big."
