This year, the third annual Northport Faith In Literacy Summer Reading Program is off to a great start. The First United Methodist Church of Port St. Lucie congregation collected 3,600 new and gently used books to provide students with enough books to start a stack of summer reading books in their homes.
Students learned about the importance of summer reading and not letting their skills in reading slide back. They enjoyed selecting ten books each. Some selected books to read to their younger brothers and sisters. They also learned where to locate additional books over the summer at no cost or inexpensively.
According to Mrs. Farr, Northport fifth grade teacher, “My students are enjoying reading again this year. They are sharing and talking about their new books!”
This is the bottom line at Northport, Joyful reading and writing! Thank you so much to our partners at First United Methodist Church. You ROCK!
