Natomas Schools Vie For $10K Grants


THE NATOMAS BUZZ | @natomasbuzz

Several schools in Natomas are competing for Raley’s Reach grants.

This year, the fundraiser sponsored by Raley’s Family of Fine Stores is giving away $50,000 in grants to improve local schools.

Proposed projects with the most votes within their region can win $10,000 each – twice the amount of last year’s grants.

Regency Park Elementary School hopes to create “Shiny Happy Faces” if it wins. The money would be used to restore music and field trips and buy reading books. Click here for more information or to vote.

Smythe Academy Elementary School plans to replace aging library books – some 25 years old and falling apart – if it wins a grant. Click here for more information or to vote.

Two proposals would buy technology equipment and materials (click for information or to vote) or pay for after school programs and supplies (click for information or to vote) at the newly reopened Leroy Greene Academy.

At Witter Ranch Elementary School a grant would be used to create an outdoor workout area for physical education. Click here for more information or to vote.

You may vote once each day until voting ends on August 31.

Last year, Heron School in Natomas won a $5,000 Raley’s Reach grant to buy supplies and equipment for campus wide science labs.
