Reading Rockets Series

The five week Reading Rockets program offers summer literacy classes to our school-age children under the direction of New York State certified teachers. 

Themes are developed around character building including tales of heroic adventures, friendship, and perseverance. ​

Skills developed by the children include creative story writing, grammar proficiency, reading comprehension, vocabulary, and mathematical literacy.

Did you know?

Children in poverty often drop several reading levels during the summer months, while their peers are maintaining or improving their reading skills.

Many thanks to Mowhawk Valley Community College for providing classroom space for the Reading Rockets program!
