Walmart Surprises South Greenville Elementary School with $20,000!

The inspiring teacher Michael Bonner is back with his second grade class from South Greenville Elementary in Greenville, NC. 

Michael teaches at a Title 1 school where most students have very difficult home lives, and some are even homeless. Michael was so excited that all of his kids passed their reading exams, so being the incredible teacher that he is, he rewarded them by creating a rap music video using the lessons they learned. Their video immediately went viral, and Ellen’s friends at Walmart surprised them with a check for $25,000!

This week, Ellen invited Mr. Bonner and all of his students to the show to shoot a music video with surprise celebrity cameos! To continue helping out South Greenville Elementary, Walmart surprised Mr. Bonner and the students with another $20,000 check! Walmart is dedicated to improving the quality of life in communities around the country and is passionate about helping people live better.
