Grant will bring diverse books to Farmington Schools media centers

The Farmington Area PTA Council has received a $1,000 grant from the Farmington & Farmington Hills Foundation for Youth & Families to help place diverse books in Farmington Public Schools (FPS) media centers.

The Parent Teacher Student Association (PTA) Council, a nonprofit organization, represents 16 early childhood, elementary, middle, and high school PTAs and PTSAs. The grant will help the Council accomplish its goal of providing books that expand student ideas about diversity.

“Farmington Area PTA Council is thrilled to receive funding from the Farmington & Farmington Hills Foundation for Youth & Families to help us provide diverse media for our students,” President Beth Hulett said in a press release. “In our increasingly diverse nation, global awareness and a deep understanding of cultural equity and diversity are very important.”
