Community members participate in Promise to Read program
More than 165 community members participated in Katy Independent School District's 15th annual Promise to Read program the first week of November.
Members from Katy and the surrounding area recently read to students in more than 345 classes as part of the program.
According to a press release, this year, 10 Katy ISD elementary campuses hosted the event with Partners in Education, including Morton Ranch, Hutsell, Nottingham, Kilpatrick, King, Pattison, Mayde Creek, Griffin, Bear Creek and McRoberts elementary schools. Host campuses rotate each year so that, over a three-year period, every Katy ISD elementary has an opportunity to participate.
"Promise to Read has become a volunteer event that many in our community really look forward to," said Sandi Meier, Katy ISD Promise to Read and Classroom Champions coordinator in a press release. "Most of our visiting readers return year after year. Having a guest reader in the classroom is a fun treat for students, but it also promotes the life-long joy of reading."
Promise to Read is one of several community involvement programs offered by Katy ISD Partners in Education, the department that brings the community into the classroom. For more information about Partners in Education, visit www.katyisd.org/community.
