MERSD and North Shore YMCA Summer Literacy Program
This summer, MERSD partnered with the North Shore YMCA to offer a summer literacy program to rising second and third-grade students. Our program was generously funded by EBSCO Publishing. MERSD is grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with these two amazing organizations!
The summer literacy program was a two-week program that provided MERSD students with instruction in literacy focused on building skills in self-selected reading, small group guided reading, writing, spelling, grammar, and vocabulary.
Our program ran from Monday, July 9th to Friday, July 20th. Each morning, our program began at 9:00 am and the day ended each afternoon at 4:00pm. Students spent the morning engaged in literacy learning and in the afternoon, students participated in enrichment activities that supported the morning instruction. Additional afternoon activities included arts and crafts, music, character development, swimming and much, much more at Camp Dory.
