Promethean joined 20th Century Fox, National Education Association, School Library Journal, and publisher Harry N. Abrams Inc. to recognize Riverside Elementary School's impressive proposal to convert its auditorium/gymnasium into a movie theater for the premier of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, the film based on the book by Jeff Kinney.

Riverside bested 5,000 other schools in the contest. The movie premier was held in conjunction with NEA's "Read Across America" program, which focuses on motivating children and teens to read through events, partnerships and reading resources. March has been designated as National Reading Month.

 Promethean presented Riverside with an ActivClassroom at the gala event. "Having the ActivClassroom will help increase student engagement during instruction," said Lori Morton, Riverside Elementary School Principal. "The hand-held devices will provide our teachers with immediate feedback on the effectiveness of their instruction."

Riverside, of Fairfax County, Virginia, will receive an ActivBoard+2 System, a set of Promethean's Learner Response System the ActivExpression, ActivSound, and an ActivSlate.
