Students work to improve their reading skills with the help of teachers in the Read to Achieve
Summer Reading Camps at L.B. Yancey Elementary, above left, and Aycock Elementary,
Selected students from our elementary schools in grades 1-3 began working with teachers in the school system’s Read to Achieve Summer Reading Camps at Aycock and L.B. Yancey elementary schools on June 18.
The camps are operating Mondays through Thursdays until July 18, the final day for third graders at the two sites. First and second graders will end their camp participation on July 17.
Teachers are working with the students in small classroom settings to improve their reading skills to help them be more successful in the new school year. Third-grade students will be tested again on their reading skills with a focus on having them fulfill requirements for promotion to the fourth grade.
