Lions ROAR Program kicks off

Lions ROAR Program kicks off
Posted on 10/12/2023

Convoy Lions member Greg Kulwicki and Tricia Kulwicki met with all third graders at Crestview Elementary School Tuesday morning to present the 2023 ROAR Program. (Reinforcement Of Advanced Reading} Every third grade student will have the opportunity to earn a nickel for every point earned in the AR Reading program. 

A student chooses a book on the AR Program approved list in the school library. They must pass a test over the content of the book with a score of 80% or higher. Point values for each book are determined by the AR Program. In recognition of their hard work the Lions Club will hold an award ceremony at the end of the year to award every student in the program a nickel for every point earned. Ex (300 pts x .05 = $15.) 

Half way through the year the Lions will throw a pizza party for the third graders that are accumulating points at the desired rate as determined by their teacher. This will serve as additional motivation to WORK HARD to improve their reading skills. 

Since reading is fundamental to all learning, the Convoy Lions Club believes  that the LIONS ROAR Program will plant a seed that will grow over the years, and will play a small part in helping the student become a successful lifetime learner.  Parents involvement in this process is critical in providing the motivation  necessary to propel the student to higher grades and future success. We ask that every parent take a keen interest in their students progress, because reading is a tremendous indicator of future success in life. 

Lions clubs are groups of men and women who identify needs within the community and work together to fulfill those needs. For more information or to get involved with the Lions Club, please contact Greg Kulwicki at 419-749-2121 or [email protected]
