South Bloomfield Elementary School second grade teacher Erin Crego recently received a $3,000 Youth Literacy grant from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation.

These grants are aimed at supporting teachers and schools with resources to strengthen and enhance literacy instruction.

The funds will be used to purchase literacy materials, such as leveled books for teachers to use in guided reading groups.

“I appreciate Mrs. Crego’s initiative to apply for this grant,” said Bruce Bryant, principal. “Thanks to her hard work, we will be able to purchase additional resources to use with our students to aid with literacy instruction. We are grateful to the Dollar General Literacy Foundation for these funds.”
