HIYEF Gives Books to CHES
This is the image for the news article titled HIYEF Gives Books to CHESCape Hatteras Elementary School Media Assistant, Jenn Auguston, pauses while stamping books donated to the school for its Battle of the Books competition, to chat with Director of Elementary Instruction, Margie Parker. With a grant from the Hatteras Island Youth Education Fund (HIYEF), the school purchased ten copies of each book on the NC Battle of the Books list - that's 160 books - to ensure that all students have access to the titles in the program. Teachers now have class sets available to use during reading groups, along with audio book companions, and students are able to check out books to continue reading at home. The district is changing its Fiction Diggers! program to join Battle of the Books this year, so the Dare County Schools winner can now advance to regional competition in Greenville.
