Readlyn school receives US Cellular grant

READLYN (KWWL) -

Community Lutheran Schools have been campaigning to land a US Cellular grant under the company's "Calling All Communities" program. Tuesday, the school learned that enough people voted online for CLS to land a $50,000 grant. 

The district has just seven teachers in grades K-8, educating a total of 50 students. The school relies on a combination of fundraising, donations, and support from two local churches.  

"It's all about our kids.  And we want to continue to give them everything that we can at our fingertips to keep them learning and being in an engaged environment of education," said school principal Linda Jensen.

The school plans to use the money to upgrade curriculum and technology for students.
