Brill Elementary Awarded $5,885 for ‘Reading for Biliteracy!’ Grant
Brill Elementary received a $5,885 grant today to provide guided reading books for the school’s dual-language program.
During a surprise visit by the Klein ISD Education Foundation Celebration Express, the school was awarded the grant by Foundation directors, community members, and Klein ISD Superintendent Dr. Jenny McGown. School staff were overjoyed as dozens of Foundation supporters climbed out of their school bus and delivered large checks to grant recipients.
The grant, sponsored by Satterfield & Pontikes Construction, Inc., will facilitate students learning how to read, write, listen, and speak Spanish and English.
Teachers will use these books with their guided reading groups, and students will have the opportunity to take these books home to continue practicing at home. In 2018, Brill had one Dual Language class and now has ten dual-language classrooms.
We are so grateful for @SatPonInc for sponsoring this $5,885 grant that will support @BrillKISD biliterate Broncos! We know that they will thrive as they learn how to read, write, listen & speak in both Spanish & English! Congratulations, Broncos! 🤗🤗 pic.twitter.com/HFeZPqphyC
