First Book Event - Another P.SJ.A. Success!

The P.SJ.A. Library Department and AFT partnered up with First Book, an organization that focuses on providing free quality books to children of all ages in communities that qualify. Our employees throughout the district really came through to make this initiative a reality for our students and staff, and First Book brought in 80 THOUSAND books! The whole event was very well organized and pleasurable for everyone! Just look at these books and their lucky recipients!

We were so proud to have two wonderful, smart, and confident young ladies represent Drs. Reed & Mock Elementary school at the Battle of the Bluebonnet Books. They competed against all other elementary schools in P.SJ.A ISD, and made it to the Semi-Final Round! Way to go, girls! The morning's competition was capped off with a fun trip to the Main Event, courtesy of P.SJ.A Library Department.


A big "THANK YOU" goes out to Mrs. Galvan our District Library Director for putting together another successful event!

The RME Library receives a P.SJ.A. Education Foundation Mini-Grant for $1000!

Listening centers are coming to the RME library!

Studies have shown that for many children struggling with reading, listening centers and audiobooks have leveled the playing field. Students' comprehension increases as does second language acquisition. We are certain that the acquisition of these listening centers and quality books will further develop the skills that our awesome teachers work so hard to instill in our students.


Thank you to the P.SJ.A. Education Foundation for making our these listening centers a reality for our students!
