iPad reading fun at Sunny View Elem.


Dora Bailey, a student in Julie Wilson’s second grade class at Sunny View Elementary, takes a break from using a reading app on an iPad. The iPad was recently purchased in part using funds from an “Elementary Seeds for Education” grant from The Polk County Community Foundation. The fund was inspired by the late Rick Howell, a longtime educator in Polk County who was principal of Sunny View Elementary when he retired in 2009. The purpose of the fund is to motivate teachers and students to reach for academic excellence in the classroom. (photo submitted by Julie Wilson)
