Open Your Eyes & Read History Project
(O.Y.E.R. History Project)

Open Your Eyes & Read History Project is presented by the Historical Society of Palm Beach County and was initiated through the generosity of Mr and Mrs Harvey Oyer.

Through the O.Y.E.R. History Project, history books will be provided to fourth grade students attending Title 1 elementary schools throughout the School District of Palm Beach County (and eventually to all 107 public elementary schools). This project is designed to help students enjoy reading while learning about Florida’s unique natural resources and rich history. The reading program will re-enforce those skills students need to succeed in the classroom and to pass the FCAT.
