Read Like a boss mgm summer literacy
MEF is excited to announce…
…the launch of Read Like a Boss MGM this summer! For the past 16 years we have provided literacy support to students through the Reading on Wheels Program, which served 1,000 students each summer. In summer 2019, we are taking the wheels off the bus to facilitate the use of a literacy program that will serve every summer program, every student and every family in Montgomery County!
In partnership with Montgomery Public Schools, the Montgomery City-County Library and Renaissance Learning, the Montgomery Education Foundation will be supporting access to and celebration of the myON digital reading platform throughout Montgomery County. In addition, existing summer programs and individual community members will also all have access. Once downloaded, the myON reading platform provides free 24/7 access, both online and offline, to thousands of books and news stories. Many books can be read in both English and Spanish while their large collection of daily, student-friendly news articles can be read in English, Spanish or French!
We are challenging EVERYONE in Montgomery to commit to 15 minutes of reading a day this summer. Our goal is to reach 500,000 minutes!
Studies show that students can lose 1-3 months of learning during the summer however research supports that reading at least 15 minutes a day can combat learning loss and accelerate our academic potential.
Want to know more or get involved? Follow us @mgmeducation or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please check back for updates regarding the launch of the myON platform.
Join us this summer as Montgomery commits to 15 and show us how you read like a boss by using the #readlikeabossmgm and #ididmy15!
