Summer Reading Camp July 2014
Quality Reading Instruction
Registration is under way for LEAP’s Summer Reading Camp, a three week summer program for children in grades 1-12 who are experiencing difficulties with reading and writing. Children will receive a reading assessment by a certified reading specialist prior to instruction and at the conclusion of the program, with a final report prepared for parents. Specific individualized learning goals will be developed by certified literacy specialists through on-going assessment in word recognition, fluency, comprehension, meaning vocabulary, and spelling development. A balanced literacy approach and research-based strategies are used in lessons provided by trained instructors. The program will provide all instructional materials for each child and include a break with a healthy snack.

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.
