Fountain Walmart Teacher Rewards Program
Recognizes Aragon Elementary
The Fountain Walmart (store #1273) recently recognized School District #8’s Aragon Elementary through its “Teacher Rewards Program.” Aragon Elementary was nominated and selected by the Fountain Walmart store associates for this recognition. The celebration included a cake and $50 gift cards for 20 lucky Aragon staff members who were selected in a random drawing at the school during a faculty staff meeting. Representatives from Walmart Community Involvement, Associate JoAnn Kilstrom, and Assistant Manager Jay Damian explained that the gift cards are to be used by the selected staff for school supplies, healthy snacks and materials to supplement their classroom activities. Each year store #1273 selects a local school (K-8) as recipients for this community outreach project. It was explained that in order to support both Widefield School District #3 schools and Fountain-Fort Carson School District #8, our local Walmart alternately recognizes schools from the two school districts each year. Last year Widefield’s Watson Elementary was honored by this program.
Walmart recognizes that teachers across the country spend a tremendous amount of their own money to meet the needs of their students annually. The intent of the Walmart Teacher Rewards Program is to offset some of these expenditures and appreciate the good work that so many of our educators provide to their students. Last year Walmart provided more than $5 million dollars to more than 100,000 teachers across the country through the Teacher Rewards Program.
