Red River United congratulates Pine Grove Elementary teacher and RRU Executive Board member Orlisa Johnson for her grant! 
An elementary school teacher hopes to give her students a jump start on Common Core standards. Our latest  One Class At a Time Winner comes to us from Caddo schools.
 Pine Grove Elementary teacher OrLisa Johnson was completely surprised when she was presented with a one thousand dollar check this week.
The fourth grade teacher says the money will be used to buy materials for her Rrace to Excitement and Discovery” reading program.
It aims to increase the reading comprehension of her students as well as to expand their writing; language; and technology skills through the use of outside reading material.

“Thank you thank you thank you!  It’s for books that I ordered. Each 9 weeks my children read chapter books when they’re getting ready for the LEAP test.  So now every child will be afforded a book to have in my class to read,” said Johnson.

Congratulations again to Or’Lisa Johnson.
And many thanks to our “One Class At a Time” sponsors, Barksdale Federal Credit Union and Sudden Link.
