A school in Albemarle County is celebrating a grant that recognizes it for its achievements in community beautification.

The grant is part of Keep Virginia Beautiful and its efforts in awarding 30 grants ranging from $500 to $1,000.

Scottsville Elementary School received a $1,000 grant in the category of community beautification. The money will be used to add new gardens to the school.

Right now, it only has six garden beds.
