Ace encourages Carver Elementary School children to read

Ace, the ULM Warhawk, launched the reading program at Carver Elementary School Friday, Sept. 21.

“Having ACE kick off the reading program gets the kids motivated, the parents involved and brings an overall enthusiasm to the program,” said LaWanda Elliott, first-grade teacher at Carver Elementary.

The program, entitled "Parents Reading to Our Students" or PROS, promotes parental involvement in reading.

At the end of the program, Ace helped with the students’ balloon release entitled, “Release of Inhibition,” which symbolized any inhibitions children may have had about reading.
