Northport K-8 School administrators and teachers are over the moon with the news that the school has been “adopted” by the local Walmart Distribution Center. On a recent morning, teachers were called to the Media Center for a surprise visit from several representatives from the Distribution Center. The group expressed to teachers that several of the staff who work at the center have children who attend Northport and that they would like to partner with the school to enhance community relations and to extend a helping hand to give teachers added support. The Walmart representatives distributed twenty $50 gift cards and jars of candy to randomly selected teachers. Talk about thrilling and thankful! Walmart has set a precedent with their gift and to the teachers, a priceless gift! Thank you so much to Walmart Distribution Center from the Northport Community. Pictured are the Walmart Distribution Center representatives, the teachers who received the gift cards and Northport Principal, Glenn Rustay.
