SKIP Scholars Sunday Brunch Literacy Program
An innovative literacy program designed to create quality family time with multi-generational students and caregivers. Initially created as an opportunity to strengthen communication and help build understanding of individual differences with appreciation. Through our “Family Ties: Let’s Get Rooted” literacy project, we focus on helping elementary and middle grade level students strengthen their vocabulary and knowledge of root words and demonstrate the ability to understand and apply the meaning. Using a gardening design and layout, this program helps to re-connect, rebuild, and get to know more about our families starting at the "root". As a signature program, student and family participants are better equipped to read and comprehend at higher levels affording them greater opportunities to succeed both academically and in general.
