Summer Literacy Program (Grades 7-10)
The Limestone District School Board offers a summer literacy program for students in Grades 7-10 who require remedial assistance in the areas of reading, writing, and mathematics. The two-week intensive program focuses on developing important literacy skills and strategies that will enable students to be more successful in school and on the Grade 10 Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT), a secondary school graduation requirement. Students are taught in small groups by a qualified teacher with the assistance of a tutor. The program is free, however, transportation is not provided, and students are expected to bring their own lunch and school supplies. The program runs from 8:30 a.m to 2:30 p.m., weekdays.

Who should attend
Students are referred to the program by their classroom teacher or their literacy tutor. The program is specifically organized to assist students who:

  • perform at level 1 or level 2 in the areas of reading and/or writing (the student's most recent report card must be included with the registration form).
  • have an Individual Education Plan (IEP), and/or are identified with a learning disability, provided that behavioural problems in a group setting are not part of the identification (a copy of the IEP must be included with the registration form). Students who disrupt the learning of others in the program may be asked to leave.
Registration Information:
  • Students can be referred to the program by their teacher or a literacy tutor. If you are interested in the program, please ask a teacher or tutor for a registration form.
