Shelly Wolfe, applied for a grant with the Josephine County Youth Foundation. She was one of the applications that was chosen to receive funding! She asked for $800 to purchase much needed supplies for the Special Education classroom. She plans on spending the money on weighted blankets, sensory items, tools for students with ADHD to focus on their reading, etc. We are so proud of Shelly Wolfe for applying! She really is a go getter and wants to make our district a better place for our students.
