Literacy Initiatives

  • Currently we have the following initiatives in place with the guiding principle being that reading programs encourage a life-long love of reading:

    • The District 7 reading initiative, 7Reads, includes school-wide activities and an author visit that takes place each year.
    • Our media center supports the Spartanburg County Public Library by coordinating monthly visits from the SCPL children and teen library staff and publicizing SCPL programs and events throughout the year.
    • SC Junior Book Awards: Books nominated for the award are available in the media center and students are encouraged to vote for their favorite.
    • We conduct an ongoing teacher professional learning community that focuses on reading and literacy strategies.
    • Students participate in Stop Drop and Read on Tuesdays and Thursdays, which allows students free choice reading time.
