We Care. We Learn. We Lead. We Inspire. WE READ!!!
Franklin Elementary School

This grant supports the Action 100 framework for reading. Students spend at least 30 minutes a day in school reading at their independent, or just-right, reading level.  Each 15 minutes that they read, they earn a "step."  Through the home partnership, families have signed a contract to read a minimum of 30 minutes (2 steps) at home each night as well.  The goal is that students read 800 steps (200 hours) during the school year.  The funds from this grant will be able to provide students with a larger variety of books at independent reading levels.  A key piece to the program is having enough high-interest and lower-readability texts for all students to spend time at their independent reading level.
