Literacy Book Display Case

Literacy Book Display Case

Kernersville Elementary School (KES) is the recipient of the first Literacy Book Display Case placed at an elementary school in our community. The display case is a partnership of KES and the Kiwanis Club of Kernersville. It blends the mutual desire of the Kiwanis Club and KES to enhance children’s passion for reading. In addition, it supports student attendance and positive attitude as a means to help children excel. Fran Little, Kiwanis Club’s Literacy Initiative chairperson, said, “Kiwanis has set youth literacy as an important goal for the club to address. The club recently provided free children’s books at various community events to encourage reading at the elementary school level.”
Faculty at KES will identify students who exhibit excellent classroom behavior each quarter. Selecting a book will be a tangible reward for students identified as Cape Crusaders by their teachers. Students selected to receive books exemplify the Cape Crusader qualities: “Be Happy, Be Kind, Be Wildcats at Heart, and make today amazing.” Students who qualify for the HERO recognition at the school can also select a free book. HERO is an acronym for students who are Here, Everyday, Ready, and On-time to learn.
Jay Cene, Kiwanis Club president, said, “The Kiwanis Club is happy to donate books that support the school’s behavior and attendance objectives.”
Peggy Norris, the school’s media coordinator, suggested specific books that would appeal to each grade level. The Kiwanis Club of Kernersville purchased the books for the display case and also received support from Friends of the Kernersville Library to fulfill the remaining books needed to initially stock the bookcase for the school year. Principal Teresa Rose shared at the ribbon cutting that KES is beyond honored to be the first recipient of the Kiwanis Youth Literacy Book Project.
She stated, “Kernersville Elementary is grateful for the continued support we have received from Kiwanis over the years.”
Rose added, “They are a true example of community leaders taking care of their children and schools in meaningful ways, and KES continues to be an effective school, not only because of our great staff but also because our community village is always there for us.”
The book display case was dedicated on Tuesday, January 24 in a ceremony attended by school officials, Kiwanis Club members, Mayor Dawn Morgan, as well as the builder and artist who constructed the bookcase. The Kiwanis Club would like to express appreciation to Lee Root and Calista Ambrosia for designing and artwork for the display case. The Chamber of Commerce conducted the ribbon cutting.
KES is the pilot project for the literacy initiative bookcase. The Kiwanis Club hopes to develop a similar partnership with other area elementary schools in future academic years. The Kiwanis Club welcomes the involvement of members of the community who are interested in literacy projects. Contributions are welcomed to help restock books and grow the program: Kiwanis Club of Kernersville, PO Box 2384, Kernersville 27285-2384.
