WOODBRIDGE – A Fords elementary school has received a grant from a leading publisher of children’s books to purchase a digital reader program, Woodbridge School District officials announced Monday.
Lafayette Estates School #25 is one of two New Jersey Schools to receive grants from the Capstone Assisting Remarkable Educators (CARE) program, funded by Capstone Digital. The award will help the school to purchase the company’s myOn reader program, an online personalized literacy environment that matches students’ interests and reading levels to a recommended booklist of more than 1,300 enhanced digital books.
“We’re thrilled to help offset the federal funding many educators were counting on and offer these remarkable schools access to the resources and tools that will provide unlimited reading and learning opportunities for their students,” said Todd Brekhus, president of Capstone Digital.
“The Woodbridge Township School District is committed to supplying the tools and resources necessary to provide unlimited reading and learning opportunities for our students,” said Superintendent John A. Crowe. “It is our district’s belief that myON reader will positively impact the students we serve.”
