Reading is Alive and Well at CMS!
Working toward increasing reading at this age, can be challenging, but we believe that offering special programs that provide not only reading but literacy experiences will have a lasting effect on students. A common thread in all of the programs promoting reading is that of providing access to a variety of reading materials that will attract all readers, encourage reading, and send the message that reading can be fun..
A few of our latest programs include:
- "Blind Date with a Book", a Lunch in the Library
- Young Hoosier Book Awards
- Advanced Readers
- Civil War Re-enactment and guest speakers
