For the second time this year, Kool Smiles awarded five additional $1,000 classroom grants through the My Kool Smiles Classroom Grant Program to K-5 teachers who go above and beyond in promoting dental health and education in the classroom!
These teachers or educators received a $1,000 Kool Smiles classroom grant:
- Minnie Sapp – Parker Elementary School, Panama City, Fla.

- Lynda Warren – Richard Carroll Elementary School, Bamberg, S.C.
“I am so grateful to be given this opportunity by Kool Smiles and plan on continuing to make dental health a key part of our school curriculum with this grant.”

“Being awarded the Kool Smiles classroom grant for dental health curriculum is great affirmation that including these lessons about the importance of dental health really matters.”
- Georgia Duan – PS 333X The Longwood Academy of Discovery, New York, N.Y.
“Teaching students about dental hygiene and healthy habits at a young age sets them up for success in the classroom and beyond. Thank you to Kool Smiles for supporting our students, their families and educators from coast to coast.”
