OCPS Superintendent, Dr. Snead, completed the ribbon cutting at a ceremony celebrating the opening of the Inchy Bookworm Book Vending Machine at Unionville Elementary School. UES was awarded a $2500 HomeGrown Giving grant from Williams Companies.
This grant, along with additional funding provided by the UES Parent/Teacher Association, allowed for the purchase. Similar to a vending machine filled with snacks or drinks, the Inchy Bookworm Vending Machine is loaded with books that offer a wide variety of subjects and reading levels.
Students earn tokens by demonstrating kindness, good character, and increased effort towards work completion all while fostering a love of reading in a fun innovative way.
