There are 2 opportunities for Smithville Elementary students to receive FREE BOOKS for the summer! Read below to find out how your child can get these books delivered to your home free of charge.


free decodable readers



Our school is taking part in a book delivery program this summer!


Each rising first grade student will receive four high-quality books this summer, and your child will benefit at no cost to you. You can expect the books to be delivered to your home in mid-June to early July. This is a gift from Governor’s Early Literacy Foundation for your child to enjoy forever.


To enroll your child(ren), we need to securely share your directory information with Governor’s Early Literacy Foundation, who is working to ensure all children receive books. Directory data includes things you may see in a phonebook, like names and addresses.


If you WOULD like to participate, no other action needs to be taken.


If you choose NOT to participate, call 615-597-4084.  Please leave your name, your child’s name and your child’s school.  Taking this step will ensure your child will not receive the books.  In order to opt out, you must call and do so by 4:00 on Monday, May 17.  After that time, we will not be able to remove your child from the recipient list.
