Macdonough is a RIF School!

Did you know that Macdonough School is a Reading is Fundamental (RIF) school?

As Middletown’s only RIF program site, Macdonough School participates 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 have the opportunity to choose and keep books each year at no cost to the children or their families.

• Fun literacy-related activities: Macdonough school staff motivate children to read with a myriad of festive book activities that accompany each book event.
