Painted Sky Hosts Summer Reading Program

“Into the Wild” Open to K-5 students from around the district.

“Into the Wild,” a summer reading program for students in kindergarten through fifth, will be held June 19 through July 25 at Painted Sky Elementary.

The program is designed to help students who are struggling in either reading or math catch up so they can read at grade-level. Students must be enrolled in schools that qualify for Title I funding provided to schools that serve low-income students.

Classes will meet from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday. The program has space for 400 students and students will be selected through a lottery.

“Students will be tested before the program begins and again after participating in the program to gage its effectiveness and to help teachers assess where students need help,” said Jami Jacobson, executive director of curriculum and instruction for APS.

She added that field trips, assemblies and other hands-on activities will be held each Friday.
