The Walcott School and Walcott PTA‘s goal is to have a SMART Board in every classroom.  SMART Boards are being installed in classrooms as funds are available. “We really appreciate Iowa 80 Truckstop’s continued support of Walcott School, particularly our SMART Board initiative.  It was a pleasant surprise to receive funding again this year.” says Jenni Weipert, Walcott School Principal.  The school has recently ordered three more SMART Boards, which will bring the total to 16 throughout the school.
