5th Quarter Students Read to Earn Books


This summer all of the 5th Quarter Summer Learning Program students were encouraged to participate in the Barnes & Noble “Summer Reading” program in which kids were expected to read eight books and record them in their reading journal.

By the end of the summer, most of the LUM 5th Quarter Summer Learning Program students earned a FREE book from Barnes & Noble.

During the final week of 5th Quarter, the students took a study trip to Barnes & Noble to turn in their reading journals and to pick up their free book (if they finished reading eight 2015-08-06 BarnesNoble 004 (2) (640x640)books.) During their visit the student had fun reading in the children’s area, shopping for their free book, and participating in a story time reading and craft.

The visit to Barnes & Noble was a special treat for the students and was another way to get them excited about reading.

As the school year begins, the teachers with the LUM 5th Quarter Summer Learning Program are confident that our students are better prepared than their peers to succeed. During this ten week summer program, the trained staff create an academically stimulating environment for our students to learn during the summer months —
which includes active learning, educational enrichment activities and study trips.

During their final week of 5th Quarter last week, the students’ schedule was filled with special trips and events. They swam in the Vinton pool, picked up their free book at Barnes & Noble Bookstore for participating in their Summer Reading program, enjoyed a guided educational tour of the Soilmaker facility (pictured above), and had some fun with the Covenant Church Youth Group at Columbian Park. Each 5th Quarter student also took a post-test during the final week.

The results of the post-test will soon be compared to their pre-test scores and a control group to help measure our success and guide our curriculum decisions in the future.
