School drive

Williston Elementary School and the PTO are co-sponsoring a "change drive" until Feb. 29.

The money will go toward the purchase of a new riding lawnmower for the school. The current one is 14 years old and is on its last "tire." As this is not a budgeted item for the school it is in need of donations for this project.

If you have (or know) a student at the school you can send your extra change in with them. The classroom with the heaviest jar of change in each grade level will win a special treat.

If you do not have a student at the school but would like to help with this project, please send your donation to the school at 801 S. Main St., Williston 32696.
