Reading is Fundamental at Macdonough!
Macdonough School has been selected as a Reading is Fundamental (RIF) school!
As Middletown’s only RIF program site, Macdonough will be participating in the “Books for Ownership” program designed to motivate children, families, and community members to read together through a triad of principles basic to the entire RIF organization: book ownership, motivational activities, and family involvement in children's reading.
• Book ownership: Macdonough School students will have the opportunity to choose and keep two to five books per year at no cost to the children or their families.
• Fun literacy-related activities: Macdonough school volunteers and staff will continue to motivate children to read with a myriad of festive book activities that accompany each book event.
• Family and community involvement: RIF headquarters will provide training and technical assistance to our volunteer RIF program coordinators.
