Read-A-Lot Summer Literacy Program

Limestone Learning Foundation

The Read-A-Lot Summer Literacy Program 2019 is a three-week intervention program for Limestone District School Board students from Grade 1 to Grade 8. The program focuses on developing fundamental skills in reading and writing which will allow students to be more successful in their following school year.

For Summer 2019, the program will be offered at the sites listed below for selected students from the named “feeder” schools. Students must plan to attend for the entire three weeks from August 6 to 23, 2019. 

  • Molly Brant Elementary School (students from Molly Brant ES, Rideau PS - depending on home location, Rideau Heights Public School and JG Simcoe Public School )

  • Centennial Public School (students from Centennial PS, Polson Public School and Lord Strathcona Public School )

  • Southview Public School (students Southview PS and The Prince Charles School)

Registration: This is a referral program. Student Support Teachers (SSTs) will contact families directly.

Daily schedule: Our program day runs like a balanced school day from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. We offer recesses, nutrition breaks, daily physical activity (DPA) sessions and lots of interactive learning in addition to focused reading and writing instruction.

Staffing: The program is taught by Instructors (qualified teachers), with a Tutor (a University student) assigned to each class to assist. Classes do not usually exceed 15 students. A Site Manager (an LDSB teacher) supervises staff and students at each site and communicates with the Program Manager.

Fees: The Summer 2019 program is fully funded and offered at no cost to parents.
