The HEB Read 3 Family Literacy Initiative, in partnership with UTRGV, held a Commencement Ceremony for the students and parents at Gonzalez Elementary on Friday, December 16. This program focuses on educating parents and caregivers about the need to read to their children a minimum of three times per week. The program goal is to empower Texas families with the tools and resources they need to prepare early learners ensuring that all children have the opportunity to start their school experience with an equal opportunity to succeed in their academics. The students all received a Certificate of Completion, books, and a backpack for their participation in the program.
