About the Spring Literacy Program
Intensive reading and writing strategy instruction classes begin January 22, 2020 and extend through May 13, 2020. Classes meet once a week for 90 minutes each session, which include authentic literacy station activities, individualized instruction, and time devoted to building reading stamina. Classes meet in the library at SUNY Old Westbury on Wednesdays from 6:00-7:30pm. There is no cost to the families - we only ask that you make a commitment to attending the session each week. Parents must stay on site for the duration of the sessions.
