Los Fresnos CISD is going the extra mile to get books into the hands of its’ students. The brand-new District Literacy Bus is now in full operation. The Literacy Bus is a “library on wheels” that will visit in-district neighborhoods and community events with the goal of promoting literacy and reading to students.
The Los Fresnos CISD Family Engagement Department lead the project, taking a page out of other mobile literacy center projects to ensure success. A Los Fresnos CISD school bus has been converted and renovated to include a colorful exterior, a full interior library, and a “guest reader” area. “Literacy is a key component of the Los Fresnos CISD mission. We are excited to connect with families and inspire children to read, relax, and engage in a safe and inviting space with additional resources that meet their educational needs,” said Claudia Medina-Garcia, Family Engagement Coordinator.
The Literacy Bus will roll into events throughout the school year and will set up in neighborhoods throughout the summer. A full schedule of locations and guest readers that will be on board will be released in the near- future.
