Bangor Elementary helps students read for the summer

BANGOR, Wis. (WXOW) - A summer program at Bangor Elementary is hoping to promote better reading habits among students. 

Parents and teachers are volunteering their time to help area students read more during the summer months. The school applied for a grant to help fund the program but failed to get it, so now the parents and teachers are donating their own time. 

The summer reading program takes place one night a week. The schedule can be found on the Bangor Elementary School website. Children will be able to check out books, attend story telling and get help from teachers to find "good fit books."

"Good fit books," is one of the main initiatives of the program, to help children find books that are at their reading level, that they understand, and enjoy reading. 

State Senator Jennifer Schilling made an appearance at to show support for the program, and State Representative Steve Doyle will be at the next session on June 17 to read to the children.
