At GPA, we encourage a love and passion for reading from an early age. Many of our students begin reading before they turn four! Teaching our children to love reading creates unlimited possibilities for learning, exploration and fun. Countless studies have shown that children who embrace reading do better academically in school and go on to live more productive lives as adults. We encourage you to read to and read with your child for at least 20 minutes everyday.
GPA Literacy Leaders (G.L.L.)
GPA’s literacy leadership program encourages the love of reading and writing. This program rewards students for reading books and writing summary reports. Students also read aloud to others and learn about reading comprehension and writing strategies. The GPA Literacy Leaders (G.L.L.) Program incentivizes students to read books and write summary reports. When students finish their books and summaries they receive GPA dollars ($G) that can be used to purchase prizes from the GPA Store of Excellence. Additionally, for those students who read 70 or more books and/or submit 50 quality summary reports, they will enjoy a special surprise at the end of the semester!
