The Mississippi Council for the Arts presented checks to Poplar Springs Elementary and Clarkdale Elementary Thursday.
The money was in the form of a grant. Each school received $1,000.
"The whole school initiative is a program sponsored by the Mississippi Arts Commission. There are 22 schools currently in Mississippi who are participants in the program," said Nancy Ray, a teacher at Poplar Springs Elementary. "They receive matching funds for the grant and are able to apply for a six year period."
Denise Knight, elementary principal at Clarkdale accepted the check for her school.
