Summer Reading Program

Through stories, art, movement activities, journal drawing and writing, and language stimulation, children in the Summer Reading Program will become familiar with the vocabulary word “upstander.”    Participants will learn how to be an upstander through active engagement in the literature read and in the hands-on activities designed to extend the learning.  Each child will receive a paperback book at the end of each session to add to his/her home library.  Limited to 15 participants per week.

Program made possible with support from Together Treasure Valley.

“Tonight, four-year-old, Holden was trying to fall asleep and he called me into his room. He said, ‘Mama, what’s an action?’ I explained that it was something you do and gave a couple examples. He replied with, ‘Well, I need to know the actions to be an upstander.’ We spent a few minutes talking about what actions an upstander might use. I can’t tell you how much I love that these are the thoughts that he’s falling asleep to. Thank you!”
