Book Trust Initiative

This initiative provides a platform for our talented emerging leaders to channel their passion into tangible and actionable work that makes positive community impact. The Grade Level Literacy Initiative is to implement a literacy pilot to support K – 3 students across ten school and the purpose is to put books into the hands of children at Howard Kennedy Elementary.

Book Trust prioritizes creating personal libraries for individual students and includes a $7 monthly budget for all students in the elementary school to choose 2 - 3 books to own; at the end of the school year, each student will own approximately 20 books to encourage family engagement in reading and bonus points for the school through Scholastic Reading Club to allow teachers to purchase additional books and classroom resources.
