Vista Grande Class Wins $8,000 Grant

Folks
 

There are more than 50 new books in Abby Chambard's class at Vista Grande Elementary School in Tierrasanta, thanks to a lot of Real California Milk seals and $8,000 from the California Milk Advisory Board.

Chambard's fourth-grade class won the grant as part of the California Milk Advisory Board's Real Seal Appeal Sweepstakes. Families saved 274 Real California Milk seals off dairy products, with two-thirds coming from student Sarah Gonzalez, her parents and friends.

Scholastic, a sweepstakes partner, furnished the books.
 
The California Milk Advisory Board, representing California's dairy families, awarded more than $1.4 million in cash, books and school supplies to elementary schools in Southern California as part of the Real Seal Appeal Sweepstakes.
