Read to Succeed National Winners!

Mr. Pennell's grade 6 class earned the Read to Succeed Award from Achieve 3000. Achieve 3000 is a program where students receive differentiated instruction according to their reading capabilities. Mr. Pennell's class goal is for each student to complete five articles a week, earning a 75% or higher on their assessments. Students have the opportunity to read non-fiction text and practice their reading comprehension skills and also write in response to their reading. Achieve 3000 recognized Mr. Pennell's class for their accomplishment of receiving a 75% or higher on their assignments in a specific time period. Achieve 3000 tracked how many assignments the class completed and for each completed assignment, the class accumulated points. Our students are continually working hard to achieve success, and we are so proud of them.
