Literacy Night at Dillard Elementary

Literacy Night Dillard Elementary sponsored by Ranger Good Works

A majority of Dillard’s students are entering kindergarten lacking reading readiness skills.  Very few parents read to their children and they rarely visit the library. Dillard Elementary is providing multiple strategies to close the literacy gap.

Build-a-Home Library is once again the theme for this year literacy’s initiative.  This is a school wide/family/engagement initiative for all students from prekindergarten through fifth grade.  This literacy initiative is specially designed to foster literacy independence in young children and to bridge the literacy deficit gap from school to home by giving each child their first book to begin a personalized home library.

What’s needed: 
$2,500.00 or the following items:

  • Books New or Used
  • Educational Material
  • Halloween Costumes (total of 50 sizes from 3T, 4T, 5, 6)

Click donate to assist us in purchasing books and costumes for the children. Imagine – with your donation they will be lucky to have one or two books in their home.

Donations are needed before October 28th, 2015

Literacy Night at Dillard Elementary

literacy night 1

Ranger Good Works had the pleasure of supporting Literacy Night at Dillard Elementary School. Every seat in the auditorium was taken! The Step Team and the Drum-line entertained the entire crowd with their exceptional talents. The energy and enthusiasm in the room was contagious! Our members donated over 1,000 books which were given out to all of the attending families. Our members also donated the costumes that were worn by the pre-kindergarten students and many of the kindergartners.

We are so happy to hear that our efforts have contributed to REAL LIFE IMPROVEMENT for the children of Dillard. This year’s FCAT scores increased across all subjects school-wide: Science from 21% to 27%, Reading from 30% to 39%, Math from 32% to 45%, and Writing from 38% to 51%.

Literacy Night 2013

Ranger Good Works helped facilitate over 800 book donations which supported numerous families with literacy concerns. This program provided plenty of books for the children and their parents use and build an in home library. As a result, FCAT reading scores are up by 23% in the third grade. We also heard that all of the scores are increasing tremendously! We continued this program with a surprise book donation from Pine Crest School which augmented hundreds more of slightly used books to fill a section of Dillard’s school library.
