MASON CITY, Iowa - A program that came from Minnesota is helping a school in Iowa, and it’s centered on reading.
Students at Hoover Elementary are getting a special program to help improve their skills.
It’s called the Iowa Reading Corps.
And it’s meant to give students individual time with a reading corps member, so they can reach their full potential.
“Its really rewarding seeing these kids grow from hardly being able to read any words at all on these pages and being able to go straight through the story,” said Loni Jorgenson, an Reading Corps Member.
This is a program that’s in high demand.
That’s why funding is so important.
Hoover was one of ten schools chosen to be a part of the pilot program.
