Brainerd Public Schools Foundation supports Reading Recovery Program

As part of $12,000 in grants awarded to Brainerd Public Schools, $500 was awarded to Riverside Elementary’s first grade Reading Recovery Program for leveled books. Teachers Rita Linder and Diane Stephany applied for this grant to supply leveled books that educate students about Native American cultures and other ethnic groups.

The goal of the reading recovery program is to increase reading levels for first grade students. Books purchased will be reused by students for many years.
