Milstead awarded $6K Laura Bush Foundation grant

Milstead Middle School recently received a $6,000 grant from the Laura Bush Foundation for American Libraries to enhance their literacy program.

The school joined campuses across the nation selected to benefit from the foundation’s $930,000 summer grant initiative, which encouraged libraries to expand their reading collections. 

Milstead plans to utilize the funding to purchase non-fiction and popular e-books (digital books) to increase engagement among students.

Students will learn how to access new titles across multiple digital platforms; including smart phones, computers and tablets. Milstead plans to implement the new e-books at the start of the 2017-18 school year.
