- End of Year Breakfast and Awards Ceremony-- 5/18/18--This is a celebrartory breakfast to honor all of the kids who had worked with our Interventionists this year. We invite families to come share a meal, listen as each child is honored for their accomplishments in reading, and to hear about the importance of summer reading.
- Summer Reading Packets-- Each of our targeted students in K, 1, and 2 receive a summer reading packet. This packet includes games, flashcards, and several just right books.
- Together We Read Program--Volunteers who are part of Together We Read support reading instruction by giving children more opportunities to explore books and language. Volunteers read weekly with students for a half hour session during school hours.
- Reader's Read Bookstore-- The goal of this program is to foster a love of reading and ensure that all students have acccess to new books to grow their at-home library. We want our students to have good books to read during their breaks away from school. Three times a year (before Winter, Spring, and Summer breaks), students get to come pick out brand new books that are at a just right level for them. Over the course of the year, our older students get 7 chapter books and our younger kids get 12 books. This program is sustained through Title I funds, our PTO and individual donors.
