Summer Literacy Program (Grades 7-8)
The Limestone District School Board is excited to offer Summer Literacy Camps for students in grades 7 – 8 who would benefit from additional support in reading and writing. Camps run from 8:30 am - 2:30 pm at six different locations. This year, we will explore the following questions:


How can your voice make a difference in your community?

How do effective writers hook and hold their audience?  

How does what I read influence how I read?

Students will be taught in small groups by engaging and skilled instructors and tutors.  
Our days will include close reading and writing instruction, number talks, and daily physical education.  Students will practice literacy skills
that are important for success, not only in life, but as students look towards high school.  

High-school Credit (.5 credit of GLS) is available upon successful completion of the camp.

The program is FREE for students in grades 7 & 8. Students are asked to bring their lunch and are responsible for their own transportation.
