Students at Lincoln Edison Elementary School in North Las Vegas were surprised by two assemblies on February 25th, where they learned their school had been adopted by Spread the Word Nevada. Spread the Word Nevada is a non-profit organization that focuses on promoting children's literacy, and this idea was met with great enthusiasm by the students at Lincoln!
The assemblies introduced the students to the Kids to Kids program, which encourages reading and book ownership, and explained about all the joys of reading. The assembly concluded with each student receiving a reading bag and five books. Through the program, 685 Lincoln students will receive monthly book distributions and access to family literacy services.
