Trigg County Primary School is among 31 schools statewide receiving a grant to help children prepare for Kindergarten.

At a Friday afternoon press conference at the Trigg County High School Gymnasium, Trigg County School Superintendent Travis Hamby described the Toyota bornlearing Academy grant, a joint venture between Toyota and the United Way of Kentucky. He says it will give students a head start when they enter the school system.

“I think this … model at Trigg County Primary School means we can offer the Cadiz/Trigg Count area, parents and caregivers, access to hands-on training and strategies they can use everyday to help insure that their children can enter Kindergarten ready to learn,” said Hamby.

Trigg County Schools Assistant Superintendent of Instruction Beth Sumner said the $11,500 grant is partly in-kind, as Toyota are providing training and materials for the joint learning activities.
