National PTA awarded Scott Libby PTA with a $2,500 grant to continue their efforts to meet critical needs of students, families and teachers in their school community due to COVID-19. 

Scott Liberty Elementary School is in Litchfield Park.

The funding is made possible by PTA Proud National Sponsor Mountain America Credit Union. The funding is in addition to the $5,000 grant National PTA awarded Scott Libby PTA in 2020 to empower their COVID-19 relief efforts.

“The COVID-19 pandemic is not over, and National PTA and PTAs nationwide remain committed to making sure students, families, teachers and schools have what they need during this challenging time,” said Leslie Boggs, president of National PTA. “Scott Libby PTA has been working hard every day to provide essential resources, tools and information to support families and educators amid the pandemic. 

“With the grant, Scott Libby PTA will be able to continue to provide critical support to their school community.”

With the grants, Scott Libby PTA’s Male Engagement Committee will be creating reusable, at-home, and age- and grade-appropriate STEM kits for the students.

“You are all incredible. The investment in our kids is beautiful. Thank you,” said Krystal Contreras, a second grade teacher at Scott Libby Elementary.

Scott Libby PTA’s grants are part of over $1.5 million in funding that National PTA has provided to PTAs across the country for COVID-19 relief efforts.
