“The Literacy Express”


Ashe County Schools received an Elementary and Secondary Schools Federal Grant entitled Innovative Approaches to Literacy.  The main focus of this grant is to decrease the Summer Slide –this is the loss of academic skills and knowledge that occurs over the course of the summer break.  With the grant funds, ACS has purchased a  mobile unit that will house books for summer check-out, literacy activities, technology, and great fun!  This mobile unit will also be used throughout next school year for STEM activities and interventions at each school site.  The schedule for “The Literacy Express” is on the flyer.  Can’t wait to see you this summer!
