Tavola Reindeer Run Raises Money for New Caney ISD Education Foundation

The Tavola Reindeer Run, a family 5K/ 1 mile event in the Tavola community held December 2, 2017, raised $4000 for the New Caney ISD Education Foundation. Representatives from the Tavola Foundation and Friendswood Development Company who produced the event, presented the check to the Foundation just before Christmas. The Foundation's mission is that they "exist to enrich, maintain and expand programs necessary to meet the District's stated mission of academic excellence." Primarily, the New Caney ISD Education Foundation awards thousands of dollars every year in teacher grants to allow for programs, events and classroom tools such as 3D printers and other technology used by students.
