  • MORE BOOKS. Students will have the opportunity to trade out their books each week to keep them engaged and excited to read all summer long.
  • READING. WRITING. TALKING Provide weekly opportunities for children to talk with teachers about their reading and ways to write a variety of responses about their reading.
  • INDIVIDUALIZED LITERACY INTERVENTIONS Children that are significantly behind grade level will have the opportunity for weekly reading interventions with a highly qualified teacher.
  • FAMILY INVOLVEMENT Providing encouragement and guidance to families and caregivers increases the impact on student growth. Families are provided with specific ways to support their children throughout the summer months.
