The Margaret Daniel Primary School Educational Foundation recently awarded five grants to several teachers at MDP in Ashdown for the upcoming school year. These grants bring the total of monies granted to the school's educational programs since the Foundation's inception in 2005 to well over $50,000. The goal of the MDP Educational Foundation has always been to "support worthy educational projects that enhance the education of the K-1 students of Margaret Daniel Primary School." The work of the MDP Foundation is supported through donations.
