New Bedford, MA – For two years, the New Bedford painting and renovations company, ProGroup Contracting, has been giving back to its community of schools. The local business teams up with radio station Fun 107 each month and holds a “SouthCoast Teacher of The Month” contest, where students and parents send a list of submissions of their favorite teacher to Fun 107.
ProGroup Contracting chooses the most quality votes, picking the most deserving teacher to be surprised with an assortment of gifts sponsored by the firm.
This year’s winners have been Mrs. Castelo, third grade teacher at East Fairhaven Elementary for January; Ms. Zajac, kindergarten teacher at Mattapoisett Center School for February; Mr. Doane, 7th grade social studies teacher at Dartmouth Middle School for March; and Mrs. Lawrence, 4th grade teacher at Sgt. William Carney Academy for April.
The deserving teachers are surprised by their principal, ProGroup Contracting and Fun 107 with a gift basket filled with school supplies for the class, an iPad and an assortment of gift cards. The class also gets a pizza party, which the kids love.
ProGroup Contracting and Fun 107 believe these teachers deserve some love for working so hard every day to make a fun learning environment for the kids. They hope to keep giving back to our teachers and our community for many years.
