Read. Excel. Achieve. Dream. The READ Program is a focused effort to strengthen the critical foundation learning skills for first grade. Children completing kindergarten are involved in a three week intensive learning experience to build strong fundamental skills for reading.


This past summer, 45 rising first graders participated in this program at Sharpsville, Mercer, and Hermitage with significant evaluation results.
