The Foundation Prize Patrol traveled the District on Jan. 31 to present more than $13,000 in grant awards. Many of the grants will be used for robotics and engineering activities. Members of the Ray-Pec Public School Foundation Board visited every school, surprising teachers and their students as part of the foundation's semi-annual "prize patrol.” Awards for three projects were funded by the Ray-Pec Cares 2018 Gala Fund-A-Need contributions donated during the Foundation's annual fundraiser.
