Teacher Gets Grant to Enhance Classroom Learning

O’Hara Elementary School fourth grade teacher Gabrielle Abati recently received a $5,000 grant for her classroom from The Grainger Foundation. Abati will use the grant to enhance science, math, and reading learning in her classroom. She plans to purchase technology, flexible seating, books, and other supplies with the funds.

The Grainger Foundation is an independent private foundation based in Lake Forest, Illinois, and was established in 1949 by William W. Grainger, the founder of the Grainger Company. Grainger is a company that distributes a wide range of products used to maintain, repair, and operate facilities. The Grainger Community Grant Program was established to give back to the communities it serves.
