LEAP has MOVED! AGAIN !!!!
The LEAP Reading Clinic, originally located at 3200 Elmwood Avenue in the Philip Sheridan Building has a new home again. The Ken-Ton School District started a new alternative High School in our old spot. We first found a home on Belmont and Sheridan where we have been for the last 10 months. The LEAP Powerful Literacy Center & Children’s Library is still home in the Sheridan Parkside Community Center and we have just been given two additional rooms on the second floor so we can consolidate all our services. We will be running the LEAP Summer Reading Camp there during the month of July. We are deeply appreciative to the Town of Tonawanda Board, especially Lisa Chimera, for facilitating this move and supporting our work.

United Way of Buffalo & Erie County Funds Afterschool Program
A grant from the United Way has made possible the continuation of our successful after-school program for all children in grades K-6. Small group instruction has a strong focus on reading and writing but also provides assistance with any needed academics, homework or school projects. The program is FREE to all students on Tuesdays and Thursdays after-school. Parents must call to enroll their children or complete and send in our application form. For more information call 716-873-0429.
East Hill Foundation Grant
A generous grant from the East Hill Foundation will fund a new and exciting program for reading instruction. The LIFTED Program, Literacy Institute for Training and Educational Development, will provide literacy training to tutors, who will then work directly with a struggling reader in one on one instruction. This tutor-training model will provide both training in reading and assessment to an adult who will continue to teach and ongoing instruction to students.
