Phillips 66 funds BVES reading program
Phillips 66 Public Affairs Advisor Tristan Babin presented a check for $2,500 funding the Accelerated Reader (AR) program to students and staff at Boothville-Venice Elementary School on May
16. AR is a computer-based program aimed to motivate students to set and meet reading goals by allowing them to read a book and take a computerized comprehension assessment. Points are awarded for each assessment the student masters and students receive immediate and objective feedback. Reports are generated from the results and teachers may better assess individual student literacy. Pictured are Principal Maria Prout (left), Babin (right) and students at BVES.
