In support of Superintendent Bernadeia Johnson’s goal for all kindergarten students to be reading by Level B after winter break, Target Corporation donated 7,000 books, two for each kindergartener to take home over winter break.
When Target Corporation heard of Johnson’s goal to increase literacy this fall, they wanted to help. Target shipped approximately 7,000 books to MPS elementary schools, for each kindergarten student to take home two multi-page books to read over winter break. The books align with the reading skills taught in classrooms. A tip sheet for parents to learn how to help support the development of their child’s reading skills was also sent home with the students.
