On October 15, Wal-Mart presented Oakwood Elementary a check for $1000. Our school was nominated by Chad Aronhalt, a semi-truck driver for the company. Once a year, Wal-Mart contributes one cent per safe miles driven by it's drivers. The money will be used for the Accelerated Reading program and incentive supplies.
