The Austin Chapter of The Links, Incorporated Literacy Links Program was a huge hit with the 1st – 3rd graders at Oak Springs Elementary School of Austin ISD. On December 19th, members of the organization shared Electric Company magazines and resources from klrukids.org with 120 students in 7 classrooms. The materials were STEAM-focused and intended to equip students with resources for continued educational development over the Winter Break. Students who brought their completed magazines when they returned to school in January received special recognition for the accomplishment.
