United Way and Brevard Public Schools are celebrating elementary aged children who stepped up to read over the summer as part of the summer learning loss awareness campaign. This past summer, 4,707 elementary school students read as part of a summer reading contest.
Manatee Elementary had the most student participation with 394 students completing the reading challenge. United Way is sponsoring an ice cream party to recognize their hard work.
The party will be on September 26 at 1:30 p.m. at Manatee Elementary. The school is located at 3425 Solerno Blvd., Viera.
