Dear DCPS Title I Elementary School Family,
We are excited to announce a special literacy opportunity! Each Title I Elementary School student is eligible to pick 3 FREE BOOKS from the READ USA virtual book marketplace to be mailed directly to your home! We hope you enjoy reading together over the summer, as “Readers are Leaders!”
Please take the following steps to confirm each student’s FREE book choices. Books will be mailed in 1-3 weeks’ time, to enjoy for summer reading and to add to your home library.
Please note: If you have more than one child attending a Title I elementary school, each child will need to complete a separate order. Please do not let your child checkout with a cart of more than 3 books, as only three books will be mailed.
