Two successful summer reading programs, called Summer Slide, were offered by a community partnership of Literacy Alliance of the Shuswap Society (LASS), Shuswap Community Foundation, and School District No. 83 (North Okanagan-Shuswap).
The three partnered to provide extra reading instruction for students in grades 2-4, with one program based in Armstrong and the other in Salmon Arm.
Students from the Salmon Arm program (seen on upper left) had the opportunity to go on a field trip to Bookingham Palace and chose a book to purchase through LASS while on the right students in Armstrong are seen sharing a story!
SD83 Literacy helping teacher Jen Kelly reports organizers are hopeful to be able to offer the program again next summer!
