Successful Summer Reading!
In the summer of 2010 we began giving books to at risk students in a few schools within the state of South Carolina. The premise was simple - give students books that they enjoy and ask them to read over the summer.
Well, the results have been nothing short of phenomenal! Follow up studies on the students involved have shown that not only do students retain reading skills mastered during the school year but actually develop additional skills. Because of this success, more schools have been added each year.
In 2014 approximately 150 schools participated in the Summer Reading Program!
The Summer Reading Program encourages corporate sponsorship. Our goal is to roll this out to every student in South Carolina so that our students are tops in the nation.
