Read Across America

March 3, 2014, Gamma Phi conducted its first service learning project as part of Read Across America at Oak Grove Primary, Upper and Long Leaf Elementary. The purpose of this experience was for the men of Gamma Phi to learn the importance of being literate and to encourage literacy. First, the young men of Gamma Phi received statistical information about literacy in America and its impact on society (this is the learning). Then they shared what they learned with elementary students and read a book to them (this is service). The young men who participated demonstrated enthusiasm and pride in their service within the local educational community.

IMPORTANT ATTENDANCE POLICY LEGISLATION:
The Mississippi Legislature passed a law (HB1530) in the past legislative session which requires all Mississippi public school students to be present for 63% of the day to be counted present for that day. This law took effect July 1, 2013.  This is 63% of the instructional day which means that it does not count lunch, breaks, etc...At OGMS, our school day begins at 8:20; therefore, a student must be present until 2:00 each school day to meet the 63% requirement
