Give Five/Read Five Campaign

My students need 5 books each to read over the summer.

My Students

Have you ever heard of the term summer loss? This is a troubling trend in which students lose valuable literacy skills when they stop reading during their summer break from school. Low income children are especially susceptible to this program because they often go home to text-free environments.

Seventy percent of our population are on free or reduced lunch.

They come from low-income households or are behind their reading grade level. By the end of fifth grade, these students are approximately 2 and 1/2 years behind their more fluent peers in terms of reading ability, primarily, because of summer loss and living in a text-free environment.

My Project

Harvard research has shown that if students read up to five books over the summer, they are more likely to prevent losing any reading skills over the summer break. Vanceboro Farm Life is asking you to consider donating these books to our school so that every at-risk student in the Vanceboro community goes home with five books to read over the summer. Our goal is for every student to leave elementary school reading on grade level.

This "Give Five, Read Five" campaign will continue to support the efforts of our teachers to help every student read on grade level.

If we achieve our goal of getting every student on reading grade level, we are more likely to lower drop-out rates in the future, have students prepared for college or the workforce, and better productive citizens to Craven County.
