Since the late 70’s, Highland View Elementary School has participated in this very successful reading literacy program for 4k-5th grade students. This program offers 3 book distributions throughout the year where students are allowed to keep the books. Along with these distributions, the school conducts motivational reading activities. This program stresses the importance of reading for academic success. In the past, RIF was funded primarily by the federal government. Due to federal budget cuts, this funding is no longer available.
