Donation made by Parent Council to RES

The RES Parent Council would like to announce, that with part of the proceeds from the Family Dance fundraising event held in September, a sum of $485.12 was donated to the school to be used towards the AR reading program prizes. AR stands for Accelerated Reading which is a program used in grades 3-6. The primary goal of this program is to excite and encourage each child to read more. Each student sets reading goals with their teacher, reads at their own level, borrows books from the school library and takes a quiz after completing their reading goal. Prizes awarded range from edible treats, small toys and craft items. Michaels craft store is also a major contributor of prizes for this program. There are several members of RES staff that assist with this program. For more information about the AR program please contact Alison Bohner (teacher) and Tersa Mora (librarian).
