In the Classroom

Real Men Read MCCSC is a proud participant of Real Men Read, a volunteer-driven program that partners male mentors from the community with kindergarten classrooms to read five different books throughout the course of the school year. Each student receives a book during each visit, helping to build the student’s home library and share with their family. The goals of the Real Men Read program are simple: provide opportunities for emergent readers to connect with the world of reading in a new and special way, and make positive connections between schools and communities. The Real Men Read program involves male role models encouraging boys to see reading as something that guys enjoy too. This program is made possible by the dedication and commitment of the United Way of Monroe County and many volunteers throughout Monroe County as well as the Foundation of Monroe County Community Schools.

Lotus Blossoms Every year Fairview Elementary hosts the Lotus Blossoms World Bazaar for all fourth grade students. Created in 1996 with the help of area teachers, the bazaar has become a tradition as volunteers from the Bloomington community (and around the world) present arts, music, language, and international crafts that let kids get their hands on the world.
