Wal-Mart Superstore of LaGrange selected Whitesville Road Elementary as its "adopted school" for this year.
Last week, the store hosted a teacher and staff appreciation day where lunch and goodie bags were given to the entire staff. The store also held a drawing for ten $100 gift cards. The Whitesville Road principal and instructional specialist were also given $100 gift cards.
"Education is our favorite area to support," Wal-Mart store manager Keith Owens said according to a press release. "Our commitment with Whitesville Road will continue through the school year. We want to do what we can to help you out."
