Read Across America “I Love to Read” - a big success for kids at Fillmore Central


Mon, May 2nd, 2016
Posted in Fountain Education

Fillmore Central Community Education and area businesses partnered up to encourage a reading program for kids PreK-6th grade to promote Read Across America month in March. The Area businesses offered rewards to children who met their reading goals. Some of the rewards were free meals, gift certificates, miniature golf, Harmony bucks, backpacks with treats, bag tags, candy bars, movie passes, and surprise gifts when you brought your sheet into the area business. The program was a big hit with the School Readiness and Elementary Students, with more than 300 children participating. This program is not a requirement of the students, so to get that many children excited about reading is a success!

The reading incentive program was created a couple of years ago to motivate children to read by rewarding their reading accomplishments with praise, recognition and awards. It was simple because the children were encouraged to read a set number of minutes, pages, or books based on their ability. Once that goal was met, it was fun as they were eligible to choose a prize incentive for their accomplishment.

Fillmore Central students, faculty and families would like to thank the businesses who generously participated in the “I Love to Read” program again this year. Your participation is molding our future!
