All About PRR The programs and services of Project Read and Reach are guided by one purpose: to provide a safe learning environment dedicated to providing academic enrichment opportunities that will prepare our students for tomorrow.
Literacy The innovative aspect of Project Read & Reach will be the use of the Nook e-Reader. This reading technology will bring a multitude of benefits as we strive to improve the literacy of our students. Community partnerships have been established with Barnes & Noble and the St. Charles County Library District for accessing online books and other services.
Character At the heart of programming will be the Character Education component. Project Read & Reach is committed to providing programming that creates intrinsic motivation of our students.
Service Another key aspect of programming will focus on Service-Learning. Service-Learning within the afterschool environment will include many opportunities for students to reach out to others as they self-direct their learning and development through a thoughtfully organized project which helps meet a community or global need.
In addition, Project Read and Reach will provide students the opportunities for homework help, Wellness Wednesdays, Funtastic Fridays, field trips and other experiential learning that will occur on the School District’s early release days, and so much more.
