On Friday morning, Adams 14 announced its official partnership with Footsteps2Brilliance to offer a free literacy app for our youngest learners in the community! The award-winning app contains a comprehensive range of digital resources, such as interactive books, games and activities in Spanish and English.
Parents, students, staff members, district board members, and stakeholders attended the event at Alsup Elementary School to learn more about our Trails to Literacy initiative and how our students learn through the app in the classroom and at home. Adams 14 students also participated during the event with musical performances and a presentation of the U.S. flag by our JROTC Color Guard.
So far, the Adams 14 community has spent 4,422 hours using the app, and our students have read more than 8,275,000 words! In recognition of these achievements, Footsteps2Brilliance honored Superintendent Dr. Karla Loría with the Lifetime Leader in Latino Education Award.
“Trails to Literacy is a multifaceted approach that leverages collaboration among community organizations, schools, parents, and other stakeholders to make bilingual literacy resources more accessible,” says Dr. Loría. “Our goal is to break down barriers and create a cohesive network of support for learners of all ages.”
We thank Colorado Commissioner of Education Susana Cordova and Colorado Senator Dafna Michaelson Jenet for attending and celebrating this incredible partnership with us.
