Right To Read

Limestone Learning Foundation

Right to Read is an after-school literacy program for students in Grades 2–6. It is designed to support the development of reading comprehension and critical literacy skills through shared and independent reading, read aloud, small group instruction, inquiry and accountable talk strategies. Students will learn and practice applying these skills in small groups with direct support from trained instructors. More than 500 students usually participate each school year.

Sessions consist of two 90-minutes classes per week for seven weeks, beginning in January, and again in March. Schools have the option to participate and may target particular grade ranges. 

Students selected to participate in the Right to Read program will receive a registration package that includes a parent/guardian letter and consent form. 

For more information regarding the Right to Read program, please contact your school’s Administrative Team or the Student Support Teacher (SST).

The Limestone District School Board is situated on traditional territories of the Anishinaabe & Haudenosaunee.
