One at a time
Hundreds of students at Adamstown Elementary are trying to make life better for other children they have never met one book at a time. As part of a reading incentive program at the school, students sent boxes of books to organizations near and far serving underprivileged children. To be eligible to participate, students were encouraged to complete a certain amount of reading each evening for four weeks. If they met the challenge, they would be rewarded with a book which they could give to children in need. Adamstown’s reading specialists Emily Jacobs and Missy Keck said they were pleased with the amount of students willing to take the challenge. "We had 215 students decide to do this, which goes along with our school mission this year to build character through education, Jacobs said. The parent/teacher organization at Adamstown helped to cover the cost of the books. The students, who signed the book chosen by them, had the opportunity to it to Harvest Blessing Center in Kenya, the Water Street Rescue Mission pre-school program or to Water Street Rescue Mission Women’s Ministry. Fifth grade student Emily Carpenter said she felt donating a book was more rewarding than getting some sort of prize for herself. "It makes me feel good to know that I m helping other people be able to read, she said. Der Moua agreed. "Sometimes other kids don’t have anything to read and we do, so we need to remember them, she said.
