Students at New Albany Elementary School were excited to use the new book vending machines on Thursday, January 28 and Friday, January 29. All students had the opportunity to choose a book from the vending machine to take home. This was to reward the students for their hard work on their recent benchmark testing. For the remainder of the school year, the vending machines will be used as incentives to promote Lexia achievement. Lexia is a reading program used in grades K-5. The book vending machines and the use of the Lexia program are both important components of New Albany Elementary School’s Literacy Plan.
