Siblings Andres and Anthony visit Soar in 4 with their cousin Brianna

Andres will be attending school for the first time as a kindergarten student at Samoset Elementary and his older brother, Anthony, will be going from Samoset to Rowlett as a 6th grader. Their cousin Brianna also attends Samoset and is looking forward to help Andres adjust. It was their first time at Soar in 4, and the moms were so grateful for information about entering school, social services in the area, the games and activities for them to learn. “The best in Footsteps2Brilliance,” Andres and Anthony’s mom explained.


As a bilingual family, Footsteps2Brilliance, an early education program brought to Manatee by the School District, teachers early literacy skills in both English and Spanish. “I also like these Legos,” Andres added… “and the virtual reality!” Anthony and Brianna chimed in.
