Elementary School teacher Melissa Hanson accepted a “One Class At a Time” check for $250 Monday. The money will go toward funding purchases of books for special needs students.
The cooperative serves 14 rural school districts in Gallatin and Madison counties, with the largest district with 50 students and the smallest with 18.
Marsha Polansky from First Interstate Bank and KBZK’s Matt Elwell presented the check.
“One Class at a Time” is a joint effort between Montana’s News Station and First Interstate Bank to help fulfill needs of area schools.
Teachers, parents, students or anyone who is aware of a special project that would enhance the educational objectives in a classroom can apply from Aug. 1 through April 1. This program is currently available to schools located in the KBZK Bozeman, Q2 Billings, KRTV Great Falls and KXLH Helena viewing areas. If you are unsure if your school is located in an area serviced by one of these TV stations, please contact Kristin Morgan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 406-570-0306.
