Franklin Elementary parents and students enjoyed time together Thursday at the school’s Art Show and Title I Night.

 

Fourth-grader Aswayla Anderson came with her dad.

 

“He gets to see my art,” she said.

 

Art from the Goddard Center All Schools Exhibit, as well as projects from classes were on display.

 

“I just like to see what the kids are doing, and enjoy seeing all the kids’ creativity,” Avery Anderson said.

 

Parents also watched a video about a new Title I program called Read 180.

 

“We want to make them more aware of how the program works,” Title I coordinator Kelly Wolf said. “It takes those that have skills and lets them excel.”

 

Read 180 is a reading program that utilizes small group lessons, one-on-one work and computer exercises to help struggling students meet their grade level benchmarks.

 

Once a student is reading on grade level, they exit the program, allowing other students to participate.

 

“The students have really enjoyed it because it’s not your typical classroom structure,” Wolf said.

 

Students were also able to pick up their Reading Is Fundamental book.
