Harrison Barnes Reading Academy will run from June 15th through July 23rd. Works with students K-3 to prevent what is referred to as the "summer slide" or regression in the proficiency of reading and literacy skills over the summer break. Volunteers engage in reading and writing activities and games with students 2x/week for 45 minutes at a time over the course of 6 weeks.
The Belin-Blank Center is excited to announce that applications for summer programming are now open! Summer programs take students on a deep dive into a topic of their choice with other bright kids like them and offer a wide range of rigorous classes to choose from, and most importantly, they are lots of fun!
