Lebanon Elementary School Reading Recovery Program

In May 2014, Lebanon Elementary School distributed six books and a writing journal to each student along with a Summer Reading Challenge. Students were encouraged to read and write about at least books during the summer months. Students were promised a reward of a picnic and fun and games if they returned to school in the fall with a completed journal of at least six entries.

Upon returning to school this Fall, Lebanon Elementary School rewarded 110 students that read 724 books to a Reading Celebration Back to School Picnic.  Eighteen former Reading Recovery students earned the reward and were able to attend the picnic. Reading Recovery instills a lifelong love of Reading! Pictured front row from left are Aubrey Price, Elizabeth Spurling, Rashaud Brown, Tavarious Bryant, and Evan Brown.
