Tallmadge Elementary School  and Tallmadge Middle School are honored to receive a donation for $7,500 from Bob Serpentini of Serpentini Chevrolet and Nathan Gault, general manager of Tallmadge Serpentini.  

The schools will split the money and use it to purchase needed classroom supplies as well as support numerous student activities during the school year. As a district, Tallmadge focuses on problem-based and service-based learning, so one student activity that the donation will help fund is service learning projects, which are completed throughout the year.  

“We are so grateful to Bob Serpentini and Nathan Gault for their generous donation to TES and TMS; these funds are greatly needed to help provide the best education and activities for our students,” said Superintendent Jeff Ferguson. “In what has been a difficult year for so many, we cannot thank them enough.” 

Serpentini generously donated a Chevy Trax Silver for an upcoming PTA fundraiser. All the money raised in the Trax raffle will be split between the TES and TMS PTAs.
