If you all remember I applied for the GreenHeart Travel grant to purchase new Chalkboards/Whiteboards for my school in Shroma. We were awarded $250 USD which equals about 400 Lari. I found out this week that there was one more place I could check to see if we could buy Chalkboards rather than the more expensive Whiteboards….and come to find out the answer was Yes!
I ordered 4 Chalkboards with the grant money but when we went to pick them up, they came in a bundle of 5….which worked out perfectly because we had extra money from the fundraising for the 6th Grades books and I needed one more anyhow! So, with 5 beautiful Chalkboards we got in a car and drove them to the marshrutka station. We had to wait about half an hour before the Shroma bus arrived and Cajun and Levani loaded them on.
I road with them home, we unloaded them at the house, and on Tuesday we will install them into the classrooms! Hopefully with friends and a local reporter to boot! Stay tuned!
