Read to Succeed ProgramThere’s Still Time to Sign Up for Summer Reading Program

School may be out for summer, but that doesn’t mean our children should forgo learning. Summer is an important opportunity to foster an ongoing love of reading and prevent the “summer slide.”

I’ve teamed up with the School District of Philadelphia and Wills Eye Hospital to hold a FREE “Read to Succeed” Summer Reading Program for students in grades 1 to 3.

The program takes place Mondays through Thursdays, from July 10 to Aug. 3 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Samuel Gompers Elementary School, Thomas Mifflin Elementary School, Richard Wright Elementary School, James Rhoads Elementary School, and James Dobson Elementary School.

Students receive free breakfast and lunch and a free eye exam.
