Lafayette, Mississippi Pen-Pal Project

Lafeyette County is teaching children the reading isn't just fundamental, but interactive, too!  More than 800 children across Lafayette County received handwritten messages from other local children recently as part of the first-ever Lafayette-Oxford-University Pen Pal Project.

Co-sponsored by multiple organizations — including the Mississippi Campaign for Grade-Level Reading at the University of Mississippi, the Lafayette County Literacy Council and the United Way’s LOU Reads Coalition — the project connected K-4 classrooms in the Lafayette County School District, Oxford School District and Magnolia Montessori School.

The Oxford Eagle, a local newspaper, has a great write-up of the project.
