Prairie Rose Elementary receives $2,000 donation from Walmart

BISMARCK, N.D. - A Bismarck elementary school received a generous donation from Walmart as part of their 50 random acts of kindness campaign.

Prairie Rose Elementary was awarded $2,000, half for its music program and half for STEM education.

The school principal says this money will be used to purchase new instruments and more science and technology equipment.

“She's hoping to buy several xylophones with the money as well as mallets for the xylophones,” said Brenda Beiswenger, Prairie Rose Elementary School principal.

Teachers in both departments say they are excited about the donation.

The school's music program is next Thursday.
