The RIF/Macy's partnership made it possible for 9 of our schools to receive free books this year. Thank you RIF & Macy's! Congratulations to these schools and their dedicated RIF coordinators who provide fun activities in conjunction with the book distribution:
- Cole Arts & Science Academy - Jennifer Fakolt

The annual summer Be Book Smart campaign at Macy's department stores is the funding source behind the free books. During the months of June and July you can purchase a Be Book Smart coupon for $3 and get $10 off a $30 purchase. The proceeds benefit the RIF program at Denver Public Schools. Such a great deal for our kids!
...and even more books for Barrett Elementary! Thanks to a private donation, the students at Barrett Elementary are receiving free RIF books. A big thanks to Mackie Fritzmeier for providing her students with a fun celebration!
