  • When will grants be back?


    I only heard about the program yesterday. leaving me with no time to meet the extension even. This is fine, but I wonder: is there a time frame for when grants may be available again? I am sure that our little school can manage something without the extra money but I would like to know what possibilities are there before I take this to the principal.
