The Reading Center in the School of Education at St. Bonaventure University is offering a 10-week Learning to Read program for regional schoolchildren in grades K-12.
The program, featuring two sessions each week, runs from Feb. 11 through May 8, 2019. Sessions are held in Room 156 of Plassmann Hall every Monday and Wednesday, with two time slots available each day: 4:30 to 5:45 p.m. or 5:50 to 7:05 p.m.
Conducted by St. Bonaventure graduate students pursuing master’s degrees in literacy, the program is open to any K-12 student living within driving distance of St. Bonaventure who wants to improve his or her reading skills, said Sheri Voss, a visiting assistant professor in the School of Education and director of the Reading Center.
Space if very limited, and interested parents are urged to register their children as soon as possible, said Voss. The registration deadline is Jan. 21, 2019. The cost is $65 per child.
Each child in the program is provided with individualized learning sessions with a New York state certified teacher and receives a diagnostic reading evaluation and report, an educational plan for the future, and a personalized reading kit with games, books and other materials that can be used at home and school.
