For its second year in a row, the district welcomed incoming kindergarten students into the Summer Reading Program at Pulaski Road Elementary School. 

The 20-day program, which is typically geared at students in kindergarten through eighth grade, was created to help students in the district strengthen their reading and writing abilities. For the class of 12 pre-kindergarten students, the program focuses on preparing them for the kindergarten level in September. 

The small group, led by teacher Jamie Landry, has been engaged in various multisensory activities this summer such as rice tables, which helps the students better understand letters. In addition, they have participated in activities that focus on school readiness skills, language concepts and pre-reading strategies.
