High Point School was surprised with a grant for $500 from Office Depot on behalf of the Meemic Foundation last month. Media specialist Kristy Gilbert applied for the grant through the Foundation's website, where she had to state why she felt High Point was deserving of recognition.
Gilbert said, "I mentioned how our amazing teachers and administrators went above and beyond to make our school a vibrant learning environment for our students every single day, and how our students work equally hard to bring creativity, curiosity, and collaboration into their classrooms."
According to their website
, The Meemic Foundation is dedicated to advancing the future of education by offering financial assistance to public, private, parochial and charter schools, and colleges and universities."
