Let Them Read Books!

Students with help from Jean Abbott - Beebe Elementary School

This grant provides funding for books for English Learner (EL) students to meet their unique needs in the classroom.

Students will be able to have access to more books at their reading level in the EL classroom and will be allowed to check out books from the EL classroom for longer periods of time so that they can read at their own pace. The books will be used for years to come.

15 students impacted.
