Leadership and Educational Successes Celebration

The Leadership and Educational Successes (LES) Celebration provides teachers and children a fun and exciting way to promote reading at home and in the classroom. The LES program is a computerized program that tests reading comprehension. Each book is worth a certain number of points based on its length and reading level. Students get a percentage of these points based on how many of the test questions they answer correctly. The program tracks their progress over the course of the school year by indicating average book level as well as accuracy percentage. LES has helped teachers motivate students to dramatically increase the amount of reading they do. In addition, the software provides teachers with instructional data.

Leadership and Educational Successes Celebrations are held to recognize Ladysmith Elementary School students and their reading achievements. Students receive certificates, key chains, bookmarks and cards when reaching the various levels of certification. Family and friends are invited to these assemblies as we celebrate the wonderful reading progress our students are making at Ladysmith Elementary School!
