Bettendorf Kiwanis in the news! April 12, 2014

Posted by levetzow in Awards, Current Events/News.

In 2013, the Bettendorf Kiwanis Club awarded a grant to Edison Academy, which allowed their students to write and publish books.  The Edison Academy then took the books and read them to young students at Riverdale Heights Elementary school.

Some of the Edison Academy students discussed their new literary piece, with their teacher Shawn Rice, and gave us an update on the project in March.  What great people!  We particularly liked the fact that while the students apparently initially thought they couldn’t write a book, they ended loving their books and wanting to do more writing.  What an inspiration!
