November 12, 2014 - Moonshot Moment Day of Service

On November 12, county residents are invited to participate in the first Moonshot Moment Day of Service to show their support for the School District of Indian River County's Moonshot Moment goal to have 90 percent of children reading on grade level by third grade in 2018!

Groups may plan their own service project or select from the list of recommended activities at moonshotmoment.org/dayofservice.  Current activities include being a guest reader in a school, collecting and donating children's books,  working to beautify a school campus, offering  a career day lesson and more.

Submit your "Day of Service" activity to our coordinator, Marie O'Brien - The Learning Alliance - and you may be selected to be spotlighted that day with a visit from Ralph Smith, Director of the national Campaign for Grade-Llevel Reading.

The Campaign for Grade-Level Reading has identified three core areas that a community needs to tackle to be able to get children reading proficiently by third grade - as that is the pivot point in their education where they are 'learning to read' so that they may the 'read to learn.'  These three key areas are:

- Kindergarten Readiness (some children arrive as much as two or three years behind their peers)

- Stop the Summer Slide (provide catch up and enrichment after-school and during the summer)

- Attendance (every day they miss school is a day of lost instructional time)

We hope you will join with other members of Indian River County to support the Moonshot Moment goal -- 90% of all children reading on grade level by the end of third grade in 2018.  Together, we can transform the next generation!
