PCA Elementary wins grant for Reading Camp

April 25, 2017

PCA Elementary has been awarded a grant to host a Read to be Ready Summer Camp. With freeform writing, themed field trips, presentations by community partners, and free books for their personal libraries, this June experience will help K-3 scholars get ready for next year and develop a life-long love of reading.

“Summer reading loss can have a significant impact on the academic progress made by our students during the school year,” said Tennessee First Lady Crissy Haslam. “These Read to Be Ready summer programs are an innovative and strategic approach to combating that summer slide and improving reading proficiency across the state.”
