IP Expands its Reading Achievement Program
IP expanded its Maven’s Milestones (MM) reading achievement program into Diamond Hill Elementary School for the 2019-2020 academic school year.
MM is the organization’s largest program and currently supports more than 1,600 students at four Fort Worth ISD elementary schools, including Diamond Hill, Washington Heights, Cesar Chavez and Van Zandt-Guinn. The incentive-based reading program rewards students for reaching each of Maven the raven’s milestones: Ascent, Afterburner, Approach and Call Sign Maven. Each milestone represents a specific number of points that the students earn by reading books and passing online quizzes.
The 2019-2020 academic school year marks the tenth consecutive year IP has hosted the program. The organization officially kicked off the program on Friday, Sept. 6, 2019, by revealing the prizes each participating student is eligible to receive, such as a click ‘n catch, puzzle maze, and gumball machine.
“We felt Diamond Hill was the right school for an expansion after their continued interest in the program the past few years,” co-founder Justin Hernandez said. “The school’s administrators see the value of the program, and we are excited to partner with them and see how their students will perform this year.”
The goals of the program are to increase elementary school reading levels, improve standardized testing results and encourage students to become lifelong readers. IP also coordinates interactive student engagements and provides school-specific reading trends to administrators.
