HISD Texans cheerleaders to help celebrate literacy
Thousands of books being delivered to HISD high schools

Reading is fundamental.  It is the foundation of all learning.  HISD is taking a new approach to help our high school students become better readers, writers, listeners, speakers, and thinkers through a new program rolled out this year called Literacy Empowered.  This is a new focus on literacy at the secondary level to bring our students who have struggled and may need some interventions to ensure they’re reading at or above grade level.

Our high schools are getting a fresh infusion of books geared towards secondary level learners.  Those books started arriving last week and will continue this week.  And we’re unpacking all the books with book bashes at a few of those campuses.  Madison High School will celebrate the new books with a pep rally with the Texans Cheerleaders

“High schools are excited to receive deliveries of pallets of books as part of the Board-approved expenditure to support Literacy Empowered,” says Secondary Curriculum and Development Officer Annie Wolfe.  “Each ELA and Social Studies teacher in the district is receiving a classroom library.  This is in addition to digital resources that will be available to students in both English and Spanish.”
