Morningside Receives Dollar General Grant

Dollar General Laura Saunders, reading interventionist at Morningside Middle, was awarded a Dollar General Youth Literacy award.

The $2,000 grant award is for middle and high schools to assist struggling readers by:

  • Implementing new or expanding existing literacy programs
  • Purchasing new technology or equipment to support literacy initiatives
  • Purchasing books, materials or software for literacy programs

Morningside Middle will use the funds to purchase sets of high-interest books for the reading intervention class. 

Dollar General offers this award annually. Morningside Middle is the only CCSD school to receive an award this year.
