G.W. Carver Primary School students were honored for their work in the school’s new Fast ForWord computer program.

All students participate in the computer program for 45 minutes daily, a release from the school says.

The program offers reading products that help increase efficiency and build critical reading skills so schools get the most from their existing instructional approach, the release says.

Instant feedback and engaging exercises help motivate students to achieve success in school, the release says.

Carrie Monier’s class has seen improvement moving from one product to another.

Since returning to school in January, 11 out of 21 students have moved up one level, and three students have moved up two levels.

Moving up one level were Londyn Page, Reuban Jackson, Jamall Jacque, Jaelyn Higgins, Justis Brown, Madison Liotta, Alexander Valacchi, Tre’ Ventress, Asia Washington and Jayden Petit.

Jayden Jackson, Reginald Falton and Zoe Simms moved up two levels.
