Allstate Insurance Co. donated $10,000 each to Newcastle and Hazelwood elementary schools in June as part of its Cash for Your Class program.

Through the program, Allstate donated $100,000 to 10 public schools in Western Washington, allowing its customers to vote online for what schools should receive the award.

The 10 schools with the most votes received $10,000 each. Newcastle Elementary will donate its award to the Issaquah School District to support its new science curriculum, which the district will adopt in the fall.

“We are very honored to be receiving the $10,000 from Allstate,” Principal Marla Erath said. “We feel very fortunate to be able to gift such a sizeable amount in order to help meet the needs of all students in our district.”

The $10,000 donation will be in addition to the school’s previous $5,000 donation for the curriculum.

Hazelwood will use most of its money to purchase a Second Step social skills curriculum, which it will begin implementing this fall. Staff members and students will decide how to use the remainder of the money at the beginning of the 2011-2012 school year.
