Elbridge Gale Elementary School wins Federation’s grand prize for literacy
Students from Wellington’s Elbridge Gale Elementary School got the chance to hang out with their favorite radio hosts – all because of a shared love of reading.
Hosts of The KVJ Show (97.9 WRMF) Kevin and Jason hosted a pep rally at Elbridge Gale Elementary School the day before a class from the school won Jewish Federation’s grand prize for literacy, coordinated through the Anne & Sam Klein Coalition for Literacy.
Throughout the school year, Palm Beach County 3rd– 5th graders watch weekly videos of Kevin, Virginia and Jason from the KVJ Show on Federation’s website. In the videos (found here), the radio hosts read their favorite District-approved books.
Then, on Friday mornings, kids tune in the KVJ Show to hear a question about that week’s reading. The first caller with the correct answer wins a pizza and ice cream party for their entire class – as well as an Office Depot gift card for their teacher.
