ABOUT VALEDICTORIAN PROJECT

The Valedictorian Project is a revolutionary new program geared towards raising the educational expectation of all young students. Utilizing the robust children’s book entitled Valedictorian, we plant seeds of excellence as early as possible.

WHAT WE DO

VPI plants seeds of excellence in the minds of our youth by empowering K-8 students with information about the highest honor one can receive as a student … the Valedictorian. We educate students early on the importance of striving for academic excellence,  provide them with practical steps to reach such a lofty goal,  and share inspirational stories of real valedictorians.

HOW WE DO IT

VPI uses the empowering children’s book titled Valedictorian to motivate students to strive for academic excellence.   We conduct an interactive read with the Author,  followed by a probing question and answer session,  and we leave every student with a vision of what can be;  and a signed copy of Valedictorian.

WHY WE DO IT

As of right now, there are more than 39,000 Arizona third-graders who are minimally proficient in reading skills, putting many at risk for retention.  Arizona’s mandatory retention policy, Move on When Reading (ARS 15-701), requires that a student not be promoted from third grade to fourth grade if he or she scores far below the third-grade reading level on the AzMerit assessment.  

We believe that by planting these types of seeds early, and introducing students to empowering books that first and foremost pique their interest and makes them want to read more, but that also contains characters that represent them well and guides them toward prosperity… we can seriously impact their life trajectory. Encouraging more students to be readers today, will lead to more leaders tomorrow.

When reading a robust children’s book like Valedictorian to an audience of inquisitive students, it is important that they are able to follow along while observing the well thought out illustrations, and the actual words up close. Words that they already know, as well as the new glossary words that they will see for the first time.

Probing Question and Answer Session

By having the opportunity to be fully immersed into the book during the Interactive Read, students are more able to get a better understanding of the powerful message and imagery. Thusly, allowing for more productive Question and Answer Session.
