Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD Council PTA awarded a grant of $20,000 to Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD for classroom book sets used in student reading and class discussions at the Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD School Board meeting on September 6th.  In addition to this grant, Council previously awarded $10,000 in grants to local students, $9,000 in grants to educators and over $14,000 to local PTA units. These funds were earned during the Council’s annual fundraiser, the Gently Used Book Sale.

Council President Sue Avery shared: “The Gently Used Book Sale is a huge community-wide collaboration supporting literacy. It is so appropriate that Book Sale funds be shared with the district’s educators and students to acquire new books. Thank you to the entire C-FB ISD PTA community for the tremendous effort that makes these awards possible.”

Superintendent Dr. Bobby Burns accepted the grant on behalf of the district. Dr. Burns remarked:  “We appreciate the hard work of all our PTA volunteers and community members. As a district with students in six cities and 43 campuses we appreciate the tremendous effort that this grant represents. We know when we work together for student achievement, the entire community benefits. Thank you.”
