Read and Rise

Read and Rise is a national Scholastic literacy initiative that reinforces the practical things all families can do to ensure their children become strong readers and learners.  The Scholastic Read and Rise program is designed to support schools with their family engagement goals by:

  • Helping families foster the skills, attitudes, and behaviors that support children’s literacy development
  • Engaging families through fun, literacy-based events
  • Preparing children for reading and learning development

The Book Fair and the Family Engagement Program are the two components of the Read and Rise program and work best when offered together during a family literacy event. If you choose, you may run these components independently. Part one of the program is an interactive family literacy workshop, while part two brings families together for a fun and creative build-a-book activity. The program costs $149.70 for a classroom pack of 30 Family Activity Guides and  Build-a-Book Kits
