R.O. Gibson Middle School Receives 1,500 Textbooks From Latin Chamber of Commerce, Another Joy Foundation & The Public Education Foundation

On Monday, April 30, students at Robert O. Gibson Middle School received approximately 1,500 supplemental textbooks. This donation is part of the mutual partnership between the Las Vegas Latin Chamber of Commerce, Another Joy Foundation, the Clark County School District and The Public Education Foundation.

Through this collaboration to improve education, the Latin Chamber and Another Joy made an initial donation of almost 162,000 textbooks with a retail value of $6.8 million to the Foundation for use by students and teachers in Southern Nevada. The textbooks cover math, science, reading and writing.

To date, almost 25,000 Spanish textbooks have been distributed for supplemental use in dual language programs at seven CCSD schools. Approximately 10,000 books and instruction materials in English have been delivered to 16 CCSD elementary schools.

The donation to R.O. Gibson Middle School is part of the larger "LinkedUp for Learning" commitment announced in February. R.O. Gibson Middle School is receiving textbooks in both English and Spanish for use as supplemental teaching material in the school's Dual Language Immersion Academy.
