Tryon Elementary School was recently awarded a grant of $4,500 from the Polk County Community Foundation. The foundation made this grant available through its unrestricted grants fund.

The funds have been used for replacing the aging rear and side curtains in the elementary auditorium. New curtains were ordered and installed just in time for the Pre-Veterans Day festivities held in the auditorium. Faculty, staff, and students say they are grateful to the Polk County Community Foundation for granting such needed improvements to their aging facilities.

Upcoming events in the auditorium include the first and second grade fall musical, the Forbes Preschool holiday musical, the fourth and fifth grade geography bee, a third grade geography presentation, along with the fall talent show all before the holiday break. Parents and the community participate in all these events.
