Rotarians Jack Heald and Ed LeGendre deliver literature text sets to Agua Caliente Elementary Shcool teacher Kathryn Tompkins. This grant provides all 25 students their own copy of The Small Adventures of Popeye and Elvis as well as Hound Dog True. Rincon Rotary's grant helps Ms. Tompkins achieve her goal of teaching students read to "think below the surface".
Rincon Rotary's support is part of its Rotary Local Program, whose mission is to help improve the local community through educational outreach. Rotary Local can provide manpower, resources from local business partners, or in some cases, direct financial support to teachers who apply for assistance.
