Students Continue to Sharpen Literacy Skills

Students Continue to Sharpen Literacy Skills  thumbnail131462

With summer in full swing, the district continues to provide education for students and has invited kindergarten to seventh graders to participate in its summer reading/literacy camp at New Visions School.

The camp highlights reading, writing, drama, art, math and intensive reading intervention every day. Students are selected for this based on their academic level.

The program also works hand-in-hand with the ENL Summer Literacy Camp, which focuses on English language development through student engagement in speaking, listening, reading and writing activities.  

Literacy camp is built around the seven strengths of belonging, curiosity, courage, kindness, confidence, friendship and hope. The goal through the summer program was to help students develop the resilience to be lifelong readers and learners, while having fun and refining their academic skills for the upcoming school year.
