Children’s Summer Reading Program


Project Literacy offers a Summer Reading Program to support students going into grades 1-3.

Schools interested in advising parents of the 2024 Summer Reading Program would need to send home a parent permission form that will be returned directly to Project Literacy at [email protected]. Schools currently participating in our One-to-One Children’s Reading Program will be contacted first, followed by other schools in SD23.

Teachers will be requested to provide the Reading Program Facilitators with PM Benchmark reading level as well as information on any learning barriers students have experienced. This program aims to support lower income and vulnerable families in our community. Children with diverse learning abilities may not be suitable for the program.

The program runs twice a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays, for three weeks in July and August (times TBD). You can sign up for either session or both, however you will receive confirmation of which program your child is accepted.

**PLEASE NOTE: applications are not confirmed registration. The Summer Education Coordinator will contact you directly, if your child is accepted into the program.**

There are two 2024 sessions, July and August:

Tuesday, July 9thTuesday, July 30th 1st
Thursday, July 11th Thursday, August 1st
Tuesday, July 16thTuesday, August 6th
Thursday, July 18thThursday, August 8th
Tuesday, July 23rdTuesday, August 13th
Thursday, July 25thThursday, August 15th

The program follows the Project Literacy theme of “Passage of Adventure” and gives students the opportunity to be engaged with literacy in a fun and supportive way. The program will be delivered through a Balanced Literacy approach and will include indoor and some outdoor literacy activities, refreshments, take-home books, and group/individual creative activities and literacy games.

The Summer Reading Program is provided in partnership with KCR Community Resources, City of Kelowna, First West Foundation, Central Okanagan Public Schools and The Central Okanagan Family Hub.
