Capstone Publishing awarded us a matching grant for $1010 that enabled us to purchase 82 Capstone Interactive Ebooks for our teachers to use for instruction. These books are available to all the teachers simultaneously and have read aloud capabilities so they can be used in large or small group instruction. You can check out our new collection here.

THANK YOU CAPSTONE!!

Dollar General Literacy Foundation awarded us a $2,500 grant to help our ongoing goal of purchasing beginning chapter books for our emergent readers.

Constellation, an Exelon company, awarded us $250 to help us create our ARC (Assisted Reading Center) in the Library. This grant helped us purchase a new table and a device that will allow 4 students to listen to the same ebook on a single iPad. Now students can come in and access our digital collection while they are visiting the library and have the story read to them.
