Local politicians read to elementary kids for Literacy Liftoff
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) - Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman, Ward 1 Councilwoman Lois Tarkanian and Ward 5 Councilman Ricki Barlow all took time Monday to read to local kids at Rex Bell Elementary School.
It was part of the Literacy Liftoff pilot summer reading program. This program was aimed at two city schools and 96 pre-kindergarten and early elementary students. The main goals of the program are to make more of the students proficient in reading and in the future increase the district's graduation rate.
