Beachwood Elementary School is in the running for a $25,000 grant to be used for its physical education program.
Earlier this year the school, led by Principal Kimberly Muir, submitted a proposal to Dannon School Grants through Project Fit America, and was recently informed they were approved to be one of the 47 schools selected to participate. If Beachwood becomes one of the four winners, they will receive state-of-the-art outdoor fitness equipment that will benefit not only students, but also the Beachwood community as they will have access to it after school hours.
The winning schools must receive the most online votes, and the Toms River Regional Schools community can consider this a call to action. Here is the direct link; one vote per day, per email address. This linked flyer has additional information including a scannable QR code.
Working with its PTO, the local paper, and Beachwood Mayor Ronald Roma, the school is hopeful it can earn the grant with enough community support. Voting takes place Feb. 2 through 28, and Toms River Regional Schools encourages its families and supporters throughout the district to rally behind its school and colleagues at Beachwood Elementary. Every vote counts!
