Cabrillo Elementary School has received a $5,000 grant from the Barona Education Foundation. The funds will be used to support Cabrillo teachers and students through the use of current professional readings and research, updated classroom library books, guided reading sets, and high interest/low readability texts.
addition, the grant will help in the purchase of materials that will
support students at their levels of need, each classroom will house
several examples of mentor texts as well as books students can get their
hands on and read.
These books will not only promote literacy
and reading comprehension, but also transition into students' writing,
which is a school-wide focus for the 2013-2014 school year.

schools statewide through its grant program, which is the first of its
kind in California created and administered by a Tribal Government. The

and materials that promote academic improvement.Each grant awarded by
