Racing Readers

Racing Readers puts F-U-N in learning. Interactive games, activities, and excercises are designed to improve physical activity, literacy, numeracy, and social skills.

Students will be lead through the program by university and adult mentors who will foster companionship, support, discipline, and learning. Throughout the program, children will participate in physical activities, reading, writing, and numeracy exercises. At the end of the program, students will have the opportunity to celebrate their progress and success in both the physical and literacy aspects of the program.

This program is designed for children in grades 2–5 (age 6–11). Physical excercise is involved: please bring appropriate footwear and clothing for the program. If your child is below or above the age range and would like to sign up, please email first before signing up.
