Innovative recently provided dictionaries to 140 third and fourth grade students at the Joseph A. Gomez Elementary School on St. Thomas.
Over a dozen years ago, Innovative Cable TV adopted the Joseph A. Gomez Elementary School and partnered with the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands for the Dictionary Project to provide elementary students with their own dictionary. Although it is called a dictionary, the books are also resource tools for history, geography, science and other courses.
Jamon E. Liburd, Principal of the Joseph A. Gomez Elementary School, said “I would like to thank Innovative and the Community Foundation for bestowing these dictionaries upon our third and fourth grade students. Every morning we begin with the word of the day and it is important for our students to build their speaking, writing and listening vocabulary. These dictionaries really augment what is happening at our school. I am truly excited about the dictionaries and what they will do for our students and their vocabulary building.”
Sandra Hodge, Business Office Supervisor at Innovative, has been spearheading this important project from its inception. In addition to Hodge, other Innovative employees including Roseita Browne, Administrative Assistant, Willa Fils, Public Relations Manager, and Jennifer Matarangas-King, Vice President of Public Relations and Governmental Affairs, also participated in the presentation to the school.
