Kissimmee, FL (September 11, 2020) – Sheriff Russ Gibson and the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office have sponsored a technology station to support the Osceola Reads program, a countywide literacy initiative that offers the Footsteps2B
rilliance reading app, as well as tips for parents to help prepare their children for kindergarten, to all Osceola County children at no cost. The station includes two iPads for children to utilize the Footsteps2Brilliance app and help take their minds off their current situation while spending time at the Community Hope Center. Attached to each station is an access code and instructions on how to utilize this resource. Children can also log in using their own Super Secret Code if they have already registered for free at OsceolaReads.com.
“Our children are our most precious resource and worth every penny we can invest in their future,” said Sheriff Russ Gibson.
The Community Hope Center is dedicated to the health of our community, is focused on social distancing and sanitation, and will be taking extra precautions to keep our community’s littlest learners safe. To learn more, please view their procedures on their website.
