Mark Barker, an area manager for the School Newsletter Company, presents Gulfport Elementary Principal James Pribble, PTA President Anna Kate Mackle, and Gulfport Elementary Family & Community Liaison Mary Ruth Bumgarner with a check for $200.
The Gulfport Elementary PTA will get a monthly check – although the amount may vary – from the School Newsletter Company. The School Newsletter Company uses information from the school to create an electronic newsletter. The company sells advertising on the newsletter and gives the school half the advertising monies.
“We are rolling out now in Pinellas,” Baker said. Gulfport Elementary is one of three participating schools in Pinellas County; Sanderlin and Woodlawn also participate.
