The summer is coming fast and with it, the Summer Reading Academy. The goal of the Reading Academy is to help students in our community grow in reading ability and in the love of reading. The Academy features outstanding teachers, small classes, and tutors to provide extra support and attention. Since the launch of the Reading Academy in 2011, reading speed and accuracy have increased steadily and significantly each year. The program is a FREE service for incoming 1st - 3rd graders and will be held at the Redwood Elementary School. The Reading Academy is scheduled from June 13 through July 8, 8am to noon. For more information and to register your student visit the Redwood Elementary School at 331 Shafter Ave, Shafter, CA 93263 or call 661-746-8650. Registration is also available online here.
