Amount Awarded
FMS Community Reading ProjectRyan Carroll, Foster Middle School principal

The Longview ISD Foundation, Inc. awarded $4,895.00 to Ryan Carroll, Foster Middle School principal, for his grant titled “FMS Community Reading Project.”  This grant will provide an opportunity for school leaders to encourage positive behavior and foster a passion for literacy for students.  This project will promote literacy, providing a unique form of student access to literature.  Foster Middle School has begun the first chapter of the project with visits from community leaders for small group reading.  The addition of a book vending machine is the second chapter to the reading project.  The book vending machine will provide much needed support for literacy as well as a adding a tool for the school to use to encourage positive behavior of students.  Teachers will have the opportunity to spotlight students’ with positive behavior, giving them tokens they can use in the vending machine.  Students may also earn tokens by having good attendance and performing well academically.  Books offered will provide a wide range of titles that appeal to all cultures, ages, and backgrounds, with books written in both English and Spanish.  This grant aims to promote a reading culture and a positive learning environment.
