    Honor for Literacy (Rangers Read) 


    We know that reading is tied directly to life-long learning and success. To encourage our students to make reading a regular part of their lives, we have a literacy program called Rangers Read. Students who read a minimum of 10 books a year and complete a "book talk" with their advisory teacher will earn the privilege of wearing a white literacy honor cord for graduation. More information about the Rangers Read program can be found at this link.
