Campbellsburg Elementary had a ceremony that awarded students who brought back their summer learning program workbooks. Out of the 289 students who took the workbook home at the beginning of the summer 158 were brought back this fall. The ceremony was set up like an Olympic style ceremony with gold, silver and bronze medals awarded for the different levels of completion. Every summer elementary school students lose 2.6 months of learning if they do not keep up their school year skills. So that is 1 full year over the course of elementary school. As a result of the number of workbooks returned, Campbellsburg elementary was very excited to see improvement on the MAP tests score results. Several of the children had increased test scores and some were as much as +30’s. It makes a big difference when you can see the improved test results of the children at the beginning of the school year.
