  • The Morehouse Parish School Board is sponsoring a summer enrichment program for its students.
    Students in grades k through 12 can participate in the reading program by following the guidelines listed below and will receive five extra points in English Language Arts when they return to school in the fall. Students should read books from the list of the grade they will be entering.
    For each book read, the students will write a report, which they will turn in to their English or reading teacher in the fall. Kindergarten and first grade students may draw pictures explaining their books. Students may check the books out of the Morehouse Parish Library, read them online or purchase them.
    For grades kindergarten through sixth, students should read three books; for grades seventh and eighth, students should read two books and for grades ninth through twelfth, students should read one book.
    Hazel Sellers, elementary curriculum director said the school board has been encouraged by Superintendent Dr. George Noflin to implement reading programs for students.
    "Dr. Noflin is very much in favor of introducing students to reading more and exposing them to the love of reading," Sellers said.
