Schuylkill Valley Elementary School named as the 2018 recipient of the Exemplary Reading Program Award from the International Literacy Association

Dear Families,

This year the elementary school applied to be considered for the Exemplary Reading Program Award given by the International Literacy Association (ILA). The Exemplary Reading Program Award recognizes outstanding reading and language arts programs in schools throughout North America. In February, we were so excited to learn that after reviewing more than a hundred applications, we were one of only two schools in the state to be granted a site visit to see our program in action. The ILA only selects one winner from each state and I am THRILLED to tell you we are the WINNER from Pennsylvania. We are so proud to be able to bring this recognition to Schuylkill Valley Elementary School.  Thank you for your support and collaboration in making reading a priority in your home and a success in our community.
