Mrs. Blair's fifth grade class receives book grants from EATEL last Thursday.

Another fifth grader, Kabrielle Arnaud said, "we are very grateful for this."

"EATEL and Picaboo's partnership is a great example of how companies can help make a memorable impact on a child's academic experience," said Ginger Weber, supervisor of adult, options, career and technical education for the Ascension Parish School Board. "Last year's Imagination Press books were not only artistic and creative, but the entire bookmaking process taught students how to share their ideas in a printed format."
