Biagi Bros Sponsors Read on Sonoma to Promote Literacy and Empower Students
At Biagi Bros, we understand the importance of community engagement and actively seek opportunities to uplift the local communities where we operate. It is with great pride that we announce our sponsorship of Read on Sonoma, an organization dedicated to promoting literacy among elementary school students in Sonoma. Through this partnership, we aim to foster a love for reading and help students to reach their full potential.
Empowering Education through Read on Sonoma:
Read on Sonoma is a collective effort of passionate professionals, educators, and volunteers who have joined forces to address literacy issues within Sonoma’s elementary schools. The organization recognizes that reading is fundamental to personal and academic growth and has adopted the Accelerated Reader Program developed by Renaissance Learning to facilitate this process.
The program encourages students to choose books or articles that align with their interests while setting individualized reading goals and tracking their progress. Students accumulate points toward their goals by reading at their appropriate levels and taking short quizzes to assess comprehension. At the end of each trimester, incentives and celebrations await those students who meet or exceed their reading goals. Additionally, the students take the STAR Reading diagnostic benchmark three times a year to monitor overall progress.
Aiming for Success:
“Read on Sonoma” aspires to eradicate illiteracy within this generation and equip students with the skills to become million-word readers. The organization firmly believes that literacy transcends age, color, and nationality boundaries. By partnering with “Read on Sonoma,” Biagi Bros aims to contribute to this noble cause and raise reading comprehension levels throughout the region. By providing students with the tools and resources they need to succeed, we can empower them to unlock their full potential and pave the way for a brighter future.
The Importance of Literacy:
The statistics reveal a disheartening truth: 1 in 4 children in the United States grow up without learning how to read proficiently. Illiteracy poses significant challenges, increasing the likelihood of unemployment and limiting opportunities for personal growth. Biagi Bros recognizes the profound impact that illiteracy can have on individuals and communities.
At Biagi Bros, we firmly believe in the power of education and the transformative impact of literacy. Our sponsorship of “Read on Sonoma” reflects our commitment to our local community and our dedication to making a positive difference in the lives of young learners. By supporting initiatives that promote literacy, we aim to contribute to a future where every child has the opportunity to thrive.
