Earning By Learning

Earning By Learning

This summer reading program is for reluctant readers, those who are below their reading level and at risk of falling behind, and for students who do not want to lose ground during the summer. For six weeks each summer at least 100 children are given an incentive for each book read. Each week participants choose a book to take home and read, bring it back the next week and discuss it with a volunteer and then choose another book.

An ice cream social is held along with the check presentation at the end of the program. Volunteers are the foundation of this much-needed program started in 1994. A very important partner in this activity is Laurel Nokomis School. Wish List for this program: Volunteers, Age and Reading level appropriate books. Click here to volunteer or make a donation.
