Fuel Up to Play 60

Students and parents, the district has received funding for the Fuel up to Play 60 Challenge this year.

We will begin the challenge in January after returning from Christmas Break and will include a smoothie tasting booth, lunch bistro contest, X-box Kinect activity center, and gift card drawings for those participating.

Fuel Up to Play 60 is a program founded by the National Dairy Council and NFL, in collaboration with USDA, that empowers students to take charge in making small, everyday changes at school. Students can win cool prizes, like an NFL player visit or Super Bowl tickets, for choosing good-for-you foods and getting active for at least 60 minutes every day. We want kids to make a difference not only in their lives, but also their community.

Education Matters: Making Reading Proficiency a State Priority

Education Matters: Making Reading Proficiency a State Priority
Video updated on: 2013.01.12 at 07:46 PM CST

Story posted 2013.01.12 at 07:34 PM CST

Parents, educators, community leaders, and state policymakers gathered at Philander Smith College this weekend to discuss making third-grade reading proficiency a state priority.

The Arkansas Campaign for Grade-Level Reading hosted the two-day Action Summit this weekend.

 

The goal of the Arkansas Campaign for Grade-Level Reading is that by 2020, all Arkansas children will read at grade level by the end of third grade.

Arkansas is currently ranked 37th in the nation in fourth grade reading proficiency according to the National Assessment of Educational Progress.

 In a report entitled "The Arkansas Campaign for Grade-Level Reading: A Call to Action " the Campaign found that 30 percent of Black children, 20 percent of Hispanic children, and 18 percent of White children do not read at grade level according to the state's Benchmark exam.

The town hall panelists at the Action Summit were Dr. Richard Abernathy, executive director of the Arkansas Association of Educational Administrators; State Senator Joyce Elliot, vice chair of the Senate Education Committee; Dr. Tom Kimbrell, commissioner of the Arkansas Department of Education; Donna Morey, president of the Arkansas Education Association; and Randy Zook, president/CEO of the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce.

A full outline of the Action Summit schedule can be found at www.ar-glr.net/actionsummit2013
