An anonymous grant awarded to two Redding school PTAs has paid for extracurricular clubs and activities removed due to budget cuts. $60,000 was granted to Redding Elementary and John Read Middle schools this summer. The donation was officially accepted by the Redding Board of Ed this month.
The elementary school will get a new playground because of the funding. The only club not being brought back is the garden club.
In an email from the middle school principal, the following clubs were listed as being restored: Morning Gym, School Climate, Student Council, Spring Musical, Community Outreach, School Spirit Committee, Student Communications, Art Club, Yearbook, Computer Club, School Newspaper, Debate Club, Chess Club, Video Game Club, Track Club, Math Club, Jazz Band, and Select Chorus.
