First Ever Book Vending Machine
Robert & Felice Bryant Elementary (BES) is now the home of the first-ever book vending machine in Katy ISD. Thanks to the fundraising efforts by the students and PTA group, the school was able to acquire a vending machine that holds books for students to purchase. The idea for the book vending machine came from Dr. William H. Rhodes, Principal at BES, who saw a tweet about a school in New York unveiling a book vending machine for their students. The book vending machine accepts special coins, which students will earn for good behavior and improvement on grades, as well as through drawings every Friday that are made over live announcements. Books are hand-selected by Librarian Casillas, who has chosen a wide variety of popular books for all grade levels.
