“The Ascension Fund Grant has allowed me to introduce reading to my students in a way that is both fun and innovative. The Kindles allow reader interaction with books and magazines, and the availability of nearly limitless material ensures I have something interesting and appropriate for every student to enjoy.”
- Valerie Comeaux, Central Middle
