Give Five - Read Five


North Carolina Department of Public Instruction 
2015 Statewide Give FIVE - Read FIVE Campaign

Rutherford County Schools would like to invite you to support summer reading through the statewide Give Five – Read Five campaign.

Students who do not read over the summer can fall 2-1/2 to 3 months behind their peers in literacy skills. However, Harvard research shows that by reading at least five books on their level, students' reading abilities can actually grow over the summer, and they can better maintain literacy skills while they are away from the classroom.

Parents, business leaders, churches and members of our community can help us by donating five new or gently used books for Kindergarten through 5th grade students. Our goal is to encourage students to read this summer by providing each of them with at least five books to take home to read. Please spread the word and encourage others to GIVE FIVE books to help students READ FIVE this summer so they can be more successful in the new year!

Donated books can be dropped off from May 11th to June 5th at Ellenboro Elementary School's front office or your child can give them to his/her teacher. Books will be given out to students the week of June 8th-12th.
