The Dillard’s Reading, Enrichment, Art, Mathematics, and Science (DREAMS) Program is in full swing in the Louisville Municipal School District. Kindergarten through Fourth Grade students enrolled in DREAMS receive 30 minutes of reading tutoring during the day.

 The DREAMS after-school program runs Monday through Friday and serves students at Fair and Louisville Elementary Schools and Nanih Waiya and Noxapater Attendance Centers.

DREAMS will not meet during the Christmas break, but will resume on Monday, January 6, 2014. The DREAMS staff would like to wish each of our students and their families a Happy Holiday Season. For more information about the DREAMS After-school Program, contact our office at 662-773-2015.

Coach Larry
A team from The Bower Foundation and the Mississippi Department of Education’s Office of Healthy Schools will accompany Calhoun to present a live demonstration of the Move to Learn videos. The presentation will be held at 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. in the cafeteria. Louisville Elementary School is located at 300 North Columbus Avenue.

“Improving nutrition and physical activity levels for Mississippi school children is a priority; healthy children are more likely to be academically successful,” said Anne Travis, CEO of The Bower Foundation. The foundation is partnering with the MDE OHS to improve the health of students statewide through the program. “Brief physical activity and increased fitness improve learning and test scores. With this in mind, Move to Learn was designed to be fun for students, improve learning, and assist teachers with classroom management,” said Scott Clements, Director of MDE’s Office of Healthy Schools.
