Continuing efforts to promote early childhood literacy through access to books, HCISD’s elementary schools were recently awarded the Reading is Fundamental (RIF) Grant, a generous book allocation donated by Macy’s.
The RIF grant provides new, free books for children to choose from and make their own in an effort to make reading a fun and beneficial part of their everyday lives. The $27,300 of obtained funds was utilized for the purchase of these books and have already been distributed throughout our elementary schools.
These books will help students become inspired and motivated to follow their dreams and achieve their potential through the new people, places, and ideas that books bring them. Students celebrated and participated in fun literacy activities in the Information Literacy Centers and received a free book to take home.
