Literacy and education are two key focus areas of the Rotary Club of Abaco.  We are interested in pursuing grant funding from the Rotary Foundation for a project that will be meaningful and impact our community in a positive way.  You may remain anonymous if you wish but please give us your best effort.   
 
We have created an very short 3 minute online survey for educators, students, school admins, anyone involved in youth, education or literacy.  Please take a few quick minutes to complete it for us.
 
The club is looking to identify a few key areas of greatest need in Abaco to work on a grant project for.  For example a computer lab in a school that doesn't have one.  Or maybe athletic equipment is more important.  I personal thank you for doing this and as does the Rotary Club of Abaco.
 
Please pass along the survey to your colleagues, fellow educators, parents and students.
