The San Mateo-Foster City School District is excited to announce Footsteps2Brilliance! An early childhood literacy app that is user-friendly in toggling from English to Spanish while reading. This app contains over 1,000 bi-lingual books and does not require the Internet when using the app. We are so excited to be able to provide this added resource to not only all of our District students (PreK-3), but to our greater San Mateo-Foster City community! If you see this flier around your neighborhood, use the QR code or click the image below with the link embedded to sign up!
