UNION — Foster Park Elementary 5th grade students are given the opportunity to apply for the position of Eagle Cadet each year. Chosen cadets go through “Reading Strategies” training and then assigned to a 5K or 1st grade classroom.
The cadet reads with the beginning reader and encourages the student throughout the year. The cadet voluntarily uses his/her independent reading time and agrees to make up this time at home in order to hold this job. These students show a tremendous amount of responsibility and pride as they work to help others.
