Brady receives board game grant
Brady Middle School recently received a $1,500 GPD Group grant to obtain board games. The grant was garnered by Orange City Schools Occupational Therapist Kathy Castrataro. Students will benefit from the academic, fine motor and gross motor and social interaction the board games facilitate.
The GPD Group was founded in 1961 by men from different architecture and engineering specialties who shared the values of family and work fulfillment. In 2014, GPD Group established a 501(c)(3) medium to aid in channeling donations that will enrich the K-12 public education experience. GPD has funded three different projects at Brady Middle School over the past two school years.
