(MCS) — Mount Carmel School was recently notified that its first-grade students won the Read to Succeed 2 Contest hosted by Achieve3000. In addition to the first-graders accomplishment, other grade levels at MCS were recognized as high achieving. Students in grades four, five, six, and seven have completed 16,330 activities, which is an equivalent to 75% percent of completed online activities for this school year.

Achieve3000 is one of Mount Carmel School’s endorsed academic programs to aid student achievement and excellence. The Read to Succeed 2 Contest was announced by Achieve3000 in late February and ran between March 2 and April 3, 2020. The contest challenged students to complete at least ten multiple-choice assessment activities online based on books assigned for them to read between March 2, 2020, to April 3, 2020. To qualify as a winning class, five or more students needed to have the most points on average, per student, in each registered school.

Mount Carmel School’s first-grade teacher, Thelma Farley shared, “In the beginning, most of my students struggled using the program. However, they once they understood the program, they were able to grasp what the program is all about and utilize the tool to help them improve and increase their lexile reading level.” She continued, “I believe what also motivated the students to work hard, was their ability to see their own growth which led them to dedicate themselves to reading more using the program.”

School president Dr. Galvin Deleon Guerrero shared, “I commend Ms. Farley and her students on this major accomplishment. To see our students recognized for their hard work through rigorous programs like Achieve3000, means that not only are they at their expected reading levels, but they exceed the expected reading levels at their age.” Dr. Deleon Guerrero added, “We are certainly blessed to have amazing teachers like Ms. Farley to push our students to grow, learn, and succeed.”

When asked how have she felt upon learning her students had won Ms. Farley shared, “I am very proud of my students for being recognized as one of the winning classes, it took them a while to understand Achieve 3000 but with the support from the parents, determination and hard work from the students they succeeded together.”
