Purposes of the Reading Program

•     To adequately equip each child with the phonetic skills and practice necessary to read with fluency, expression and good comprehension.
•     To increase each child’s love for reading by allowing him opportunities to choose titles from a given list of quality children’s literature.
•     To expose the child to a wide variety of literature styles and forms, each student will read at least ten books each year.
•     To integrate the love and practice of reading with every area of study.
•     To encourage each student to become a read-to-learn person.
