Local heroes impressed by students at 2017 Reading Recovery event
The Walton Charter Academy, one of several schools throughout Michigan affiliated with Oakland University's Reading Recovery Center, recently participated in the 2017 Reading Recovery Council of North America (RRCNA) “Reading Recovery Read Aloud” event.
The event was designed to increase awareness of children who struggle to read and to ensure they get the attention they need.
This year was made extra special as Walton Charter Academy leaders invited local heroes to came to the school to listen to several of their Reading Recovery students read and show the progress they have made so far this year.
Those participating in the program included: Oakland County Sheriff Canine Unit officer deputy Bob Loken, paramedic Lisa Riera, firefighter Brian Reynolds and pediatric nurse Meagan Loken.
The day was a positive experience for everyone involved and those interested can learn more about the Reading Recovery Read Aloud program.
