Editor's note: The following is a press release from Valley View School District 365U.
Independence Elementary School will purchase books for its library using a $500 reading grant from Target Corporation.
“We are always looking for more opportunities to put books and resources into the hands of our students,” said Independence LMC Director Heather Hernandez. “It is essential to increase our resources so that students have access to good literature.”
Hernandez and Principal Kim Mulcahy both expressed their appreciation to Target for awarding the grant to Independence.
“In alignment with The New View, reading is an essential skill that will foster life-long learners and prepare our students for a successful future,” Hernandez said.
“Thanks to the help and generosity of Target and other community partners, we are able to address the needs of all of our students including bilingual, early emergent readers and our proficient and above-grade readers.”
