Here’s some amazing news: Remember that video we posted from Leonard R. Flynn Elementary School?
Local Bernal elementary school, Leonard R. Flynn Elementary School (just off Precita Park) is a finalist in the Coupon Cabin’s arts grant contest.
Our YouTube video has garnered almost 1,000 views and could use a boost from Bernal neighbors. Views, “likes,” and comments are 25% of the judging for the $5k, $10k, or $15k award to be used for art and music programming at this local gem of an elementary school.
We have until September 18 to rally around the video and win the award for our programs.
Well, hot damn, Leonard Flynn School up and WON top prize in the competition! Reader Teresa sent an update today:
Just wanted to let you know that thanks to Bernalwood (among others) Leonard R. Flynn Elementary School won the grand prize grant! The full $15,000 bucks in the Coupon Cabin arts grant contest!
Bernal will benefit greatly from these funds as it goes directly to helping our kids’ education in the arts.
Spectacular. Nicely done, people. Nicely done. Goooooo BERNAL!
