Teaching kids to read is a team effort

Parents, teachers, caregivers, and members of the community play an important role in teaching children to read. Research shows that what families do makes a difference, what teachers do makes a difference, and what community programs do makes a difference. Here are some links and resources to support you as parents when it comes to helping your child read!

Thank you!!

Thank you to Liberty Bank, LeSauk Lions Club, Oak Ridge Elementary PTO, GREAT Theater, Cold Stone, and Crafts Direct who are donating money to purchase the books for each family or are getting involved by promoting the book at their business! This is truly becoming a Community Book Project!!

Did you know???

All elementary schools in St. Cloud and Sauk Rapids- Rice are also reading Mr. Popper's Penguins?? If you have cousins, friends, teammates, neighbors that attend any of those schools, give them a call and see what they are thinking of Mr. Popper and Captain Cook!
