Children’s Summer Reading Program

Project Literacy offers a Summer Slide Reading Program to support students going into grades 1-4.

The 2022 Summer Reading Program is now complete. Check back with us in summer 2023 for our next program availability.

Absolutely wonderful, the facilitators could not be better. An excellent opportunity for my child. I would love more knowledge of what activities are happening in the class and what activities I can do at home to further support his learning. Thank you, again!

Schools interested in advising parents of the Summer Reading Program would need to send home a parent permission form that will be returned to school and to Project Literacy. 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, for three weeks in July and August.

The program follows the Project Literacy theme of “Explore Our Universe” and give 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 Childhood Connections, KCR Community Resources, and The Family Hub. Funding for the program is provided, in part, by the Kelowna Morningside Rotary.
