The Reader Leader Program is a peer tutoring program that matches elementary school children entering 1st to 5th grades (READERS) with middle or high school students (LEADERS) for one-on-one reading sessions.
The program takes place during a six week period in the summer at both the the Main Library and the Grand Avenue Branch Library.
Readers are children who are below grade level in their reading skills.
Readers come to the program through the suggestion of their teachers or their parents. The library distributes flyers about the program to teachers at the local public and parochial schools. Teachers can refer children to the program who need extra practice with reading skills. Many parents become aware of the program through visits to the library or by word of mouth.
Leaders are recruited through flyers sent to the local middle and high schools. Leaders might also find out about the program through a visit to the library or from a friend. First time Leaders must attend a training session at the Main Library or Grand Avenue Branch Library in June.  Returning Leaders may fill out an application available at either library in June. Please visit our Volunteer page.
Training Session: Monday June 5th, 2017. 3-4pm at 840 West Orange Ave. Main Library Branch

Attention Freshmen and Sophomores

 

The United States Air Force Academy is a more challenging and competitive environment than a typical college or university. The Academy offers a top-ranked education and a world of opportunity to those applicants who can meet our admissions requirements.

While you are still too young to apply to the Academy, it is never too early to start preparing. As a matter of fact, the earlier you start, the better your potential to be accepted. There are four things we look for in a future Academy cadet:

  • Academics
  • Athletics
  • Leadership
  • Character

So how do you prepare for a future at the Academy?

  • Study hard. Get the best grades you can in all subjects — especially English, math and science.
  • Join a sports team. If your school does not have an after-school sports program, you can usually find one at your local community park or recreation center.
  • Become a leader. Join a scouting program like Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts or Civil Air Patrol. Or join another school or local club and go for a leadership position like club president or secretary.
  • Demonstrate character. Consider activities that help others. Get involved with church groups or other organizations that may be helping members of your community.

These activities will help you demonstrate your academic performance, athletic potential, leadership and character traits. Starting early and being prepared are your best shots for earning an appointment to the Academy. We hope to see you in a few years!

A previous message went out stating that the 9th grade parent meeting this Tuesday would start at 6PM.  It is actually starting at 5:30 PM in the Little Theater.  I apologize for the confusion.  This will be a great opportunity to get to know your student's counselor and to learn about the four year plan and counseling services.
