“I Love to Read” program a Big Success for Kids in Fillmore Central and Lanesboro Schools


Fri, Apr 25th, 2014
Posted in Lanesboro Education

Fillmore Central Community Education, Fillmore Central Schools, Lanesboro Schools, and area businesses partnered up to encourage a reading program for kids in our area. The “I Love to Read” program was introduced this past February during “I Love to Read” month. Area businesses offered rewards to children who met their reading goals. Some of the rewards were free meals, mini manicures, gift certificates, bowling, golfing, Preston bucks, and even Horse drawn wagon rides. The program was a big hit with the School Readiness and Elementary Students at both schools with more than 300 children participating.

This new reading program was created to motivate children to read by rewarding their reading accomplishments with praise, recognition and awards. The program ran February and March of this year. 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 for their accomplishment.

Fillmore Central and Lanesboro students, faculty and families would like to thank the businesses who generously participated in the “I Love to Read” program.
