Round of applause for the students from the Jeffco READS intensive summary literacy program at Governor's Ranch Elementary!

These growing readers were challenged by former Denver Broncos player Nick Ferguson to read 300 books and he would host a pizza party for them. 
 
Our students knocked it out of the park and celebrated their achievements, including Takota, rising 2nd grader, who achieved perfect attendance and said his favorite part of summer reading was "learning the tricky words that are not spelled like they sound."

Thank you to Nick, Jeffco Schools Foundation and The Action Center for generously sponsoring our summer literacy program.
 
Jeffco READS is an intensive summer literacy for students entering first, second and third grades during the 2024-25 school year. The focus is on developing phonemic awareness and phonics skills. Services were available at nine schools; class sizes generally ranged from 8 to 12 students. Teachers were all trained in Orton Gillingham approach that incorporates multi-sensory approach to learning to read – tactile, auditory and visual.
