Books in Pairs/Libros en Pares

Great things are happening at Barnett Elementary. Students are reading, reading, reading. They can now take home books in English accompanied with the same book in Spanish. For many parents who read only Spanish, this has been the first time that they have been able to sit and read with their child. One parent excitedly shared that he and his daughter are "reading together every night." The check out library has been organized by fifth grade students: Diana Guillen, Alejandra Sanchez, Jonathan Cordova, and Mario Cruz.

The Nebo School District is also sponsoring the Family Literacy Center. This center offers FREE adult and student (K-6) English instruction as well as free childcare for babies and pre-schoolers. Call Maria Zambrano with questions at 801-361-0891.
