District's summer program promotes reading
On a sunny Wednesday morning in July, Makenzi Mattson sits in front of a computer at Paperjack Elementary.
She is taking a test based on a book she just finished reading as part of the Accelerated Reading (AR) Incentive Program.
With her dad and Title I Reading Teacher Jan Strandemo looking on, 10-year-old Makenzi aces her test. A score of 80 percent or better is required to pass each test.
