Children learn to read on the laps of their parents.....
Reading puts your brain to work.
Reading is to the mind what exercise is to your body.
It gives us freedom to roam the expanse of space, time, history, and offer a deeper view of ideas, concepts, emotions, and body of knowledge.
Roberto Bolano says, "Reading is like thinking, like praying, like talking to a friend, like expressing your ideas, like listening to other people's ideas, like listening to music, like looking at the view, like taking a walk on the beach."
Your brain on books is active -- growing, changing and making new connections and different patterns, depending on the type of material you're reading.

The service allows families to register their homes and occupants for the purpose of providing law enforcement and first responders with immediate access to life-saving information in the event of a call for help to 911.
During an actual emergency, first responders will have this vital information relayed to them before they arrive.
Signing up is fast, easy, and free!

Congratulations to North Augusta Elementary Assistant Principal Lindsey Hager for earning the first-ever Assistant Principal of the Year honor from ACPSD!
Misty McConnell was taken by surprise as District leaders announced her as Teacher of the Year, presenting her with a trophy, balloons, a cash prize, and other gifts.
Utilizing $520,000 over four years, ACPSD is operating an evidence-based program which serves specific cohorts of students who are at risk of academic failure.
Rising eighth-grade students completed the rigorous program where they learned valuable new skills while also mastering best practices of excellent writing.
