Brinson Memorial Elementary recently received highlighters, notebooks, journals, and pencils from E & J Automotive for their third grade students to assist them with their Read to Achieve studies.
Alexandria Aguiar, Principal at Brinson Memorial explains, “Reading is at the core of all instruction in kindergarten through third grade. As students move to higher grades, they build deeper comprehension skills. Students with strong reading skills have a higher chance of success in all other subject areas.”
Ebbie Howard with E & J said his firm “believes in supporting the students and families in our community by fostering a love for reading and encouraging them during the Read to Achieve program.”
