We had a wonderful assembly today to kick off our Road to Success Reading Program. Our reading goal for this year is:
- Read five days per week to earn your chance to win a Grand Prize
- Read seven days per week to earn two chances to win a Grand Prize
- Set a daily reading goal with your child’s teacher
- Keep reaching your weekly goals to earn bonus incentives
Every school year, each participating elementary school starts off the program by setting reading goals with students. The Road to Success program provides each school with hallway banners, classroom reading charts, take-home folders, and other materials intended to remind students of the goal and track each child’s progress. Students have opportunities to earn bonus incentives throughout the year for accomplishing reading goals. In addition, each student who reaches weekly reading goals will receive an entry which is placed into a drawing for a grand prize.
Every eight-week period, The Road to Success program gives away a grand prize at each school for a total of four grand prizes per school.Test scores and testimonials confirm that the Road to Success reading program is making a significant difference in the lives of Utah’s school children. The impact of literacy is felt not only by individual children, but by our community as a whole, and it is an issue we cannot afford to ignore. The best investment we can make in our community is to ensure that our children can read, and the Road to Success program is an effective way to make that investment.
