Inverness Elementary School has received a Sharing the Dream grant from the National Association of Elementary School Principals.

The $3,000 grant is one of 30 grants to be awarded nationwide. Inverness will use the grant to bridge the gap between their Toyota Family Literacy Program (where English-as-a-second language parents are working to improve their own literacy skills) and their general parent population.

The grant will be used to conduct family workshops, take parents on educational fieldtrips, host a Cultural Fair and provide presentations by community resource representatives.
