COPPERAS COVE, TX (KXXV) -

Copperas Cove H-E-B and CCISD partnered together this year on the H-E-B 3 Read, an event to give students a better chance of success in school and in life.

Participation in the Read 3 Read-In required schools spend 30 minutes reading to students or have older students spend at least 30 minutes reading to themselves. Copperas Cove H-E-B Administrative Assistant Jennifer Cotter said she contacted the school district and within minutes the commitment was there.

“Texas is facing a major challenge around early childhood education and kinder(garten) readiness, so H-E- B launched a statewide early childhood literacy initiative called Read 3,” Cotter said.

“This is our fifth year with this program and it makes it easier partnering up with a great organization like CCISD.” Cotter added.

CCISD will receive $1,000 cash toward literacy initiatives within the district, CCISD Library Coordinator Dayna Mellberg said.

“Community and school partnerships such as the READ 3 program sponsored by H-E- B provide a special kind of support as families, communities and school all work toward the common goal of student success,” Mellberg said.
