Ceremonies to Honor Reading Together USA Participants

June 11, 2002
Nearly 600 students, parents, and staff from the 42 schools that have participated in the Reading Together USA Program in Montgomery County this year will meet for a celebration of their accomplishments.

Montgomery County is a national demonstration site for Reading Together USA, which is a structured tutoring program that trains family and other volunteer tutors to assist struggling young readers. The international program was first developed in Israel more than 19 years ago and has proved to be highly effective in increasing reading comprehension and fluency.

Certificates and gift books will be presented to the second grade students who have been tutored by parents and other student and adult volunteers during this school year.
