In our partnership with Pine Street neighbor, Whittier Elementary, Reading Camp is helping to expand the St. John's community presence while providing a valuable, much-needed service to low-income children. The National Reading Camp Network sites in it's May newsletter that: "Two-thirds of the ninth grade achievement gap can be explained by unequal access to summer learning opportunities during the elementary school years. Your gifts ensure that the students we serve do not become part of the achievement gap statistic. Your gifts will help them build skills and achieve success in school and in life."
St. John's Reading Camp is a great opportunity for both individual and family outreach, whether you buy materials and books for campers, prepare a lunch during the week, decorate the parish hall before camp, or read to campers in the morning, there are so many ways to get involved! Take the opportunity to help change the life of a child; you may find, in dong so, you're changing your own!
