Become an AKR Summer Partner
AR Kids Read (AKR) is seeking Literacy Playground partner sites for Summer 2023. We are accepting applications from sites in Pulaski County. If interested, please read the information below and submit the application via google link no later than Wednesday, March 15.
The AKR Literacy Playground program is an engaging, dynamic, and camp-themed literacy program designed to reduce summer slide and help students close grade-level reading gaps. The program is embedded in an established summer program’s daily schedule. Students will not only receive valuable foundational literacy skill building and reading and writing practice, they will also engage in activities that promote social emotional learning and engagement skills. This includes the seven strengths from Scholastic’s Lit Camp – belonging, friendship, curiosity, kindness, confidence, courage, and hope.
