Since August 2014, Santaquin Elementary School has received over 5,000 books from First Book, a national book bank. That is over $40,000 in reading materials to support student learning.
To receive these materials, Mr. Eric Kern applied for six grants in a one year time frame. These grants were all approved.
We have been able to give these books away to our students during Parent Literacy Nights, assemblies, and within our classrooms.
