BREWER – Brewerâ€™s Washington Street School teacher, Cherrie MacInnes and her third grade students accepted a reading challenge that would help support adult literacy. Each of Mrs. MacInnesâ€™ 23 students read for 100 minutes. In recognition of their efforts, MacInnes Optical, a local business, donated $100 to Literacy Volunteers of Bangor (LV-Bangor).
Prior to the assignment, the third graders learned that some adults struggle with readingâ€“a subject these children are learning to master every day they attend school. â€śOnce the students realized that the reading challenge would result in a $100 donation to LV-Bangor, they took the assignment so seriously,â€ť explained Mrs. MacInnes.
