The first Achieve 3000 all-star literacy celebration took place at the St. Paul Christian School gym in Harmon on Thursday evening. The event recognized outstanding student achievement, teacher involvement, and district leadership relative to the literacy program.

The students recognized had some of the highest scores district-wide. Lieutenant Governor Ray Tenorio announced, "Literacy is the cornerstone, the bedrock, of which all other knowledge is obtained. Please continue to inspire them and give them the knowledge and tools to learn, the students are the future not just of Guam, but the entire world."

The Achieve 3000 has been utilized in schools nationwide for the past sixteen years. It aims to help students follow their dreams by improving their reading and writing skills to ensure they are both college and career ready.
