Wishing you well!
If you agreed to submit a 2014-2015 Demographic Data Form on your Partnership Guidelines form, please do so by Friday, May 29. Click here to download. The data we receive from Project MORE schools allows us to continue research as well as supports the program for future funding.
We are asking Project MORE schools (active and inactive) to submit a 2015-2016 Implementation Form by Friday, May 29. Click here to download. By doing so, our Project MORE staff is best able to advocate for schools and serve as a valuable support for Project MORE coordinators. By completing and returning the form in May, your school will not have to submit a form in the fall.
My first year as a Project MORE Coordinator has been an adventure! The Project MORE training session I attended with Barb and Cindy gave me the map I needed to begin the adventure. I left the training knowing what I needed to make this program a success at our school for our young readers. The Project MORE conference that followed gave me the excitement that all great adventures start off with. The enthusiasm from everyone involved with Project MORE is contagious!
The organization process of starting the program in our building was a fun challenge. Once we created a space for our readers/mentors and organized the materials needed for the program it was time to train mentors. The team of mentors we have in our program are parents, grandparents, retired teachers, community members, administrators, middle school and high school students. Each one is dedicated, supportive, and enthusiastic and has created bonds with their young readers.
Our community has been a huge support of our Project MORE program. Our local library has provided books for each of our young readers to earn and take home to keep. Local businesses have donated products from their stores to give to our mentors as a “Thank You” for all they do.
adventure continues for the young readers at Graham Elementary School and the
mentors that work with them each day! The excitement of the Project MORE
program here at Graham Elementary School has not slowed down!
Gretta Kumpf, Tipp City Assistant Superintendent, has graciously agreed to
share their mentor certificate given to Project MORE volunteer mentors on the
day of their “Thank You Celebration”. Special recognition is given to Kim
Hagen, Administrative Assistant, for the certificate design. Thank you, Dr.
Kumpf and Kim!
