Summer Slide Program

Grace and EmmaIn July of 2017, LASS, in partnership with SD83, de­veloped a 3 week summer school reading program aimed at improving students’ literacy skills by providing them with targeted support. The program was aligned with current research that highlights the critical importance of continuing reading instruction throughout the summer. The program provided primary students from the Salmon Arm area with enriched educational experiences during a time when they were not receiving formal schooling.Students are invited to attend this program by the Learning Resource Teacher in their school.
