READY! for Kindergarten closes the achievement gap by engaging parents and caregivers in a child’s early learning. Our READY! for Kindergarten workshops are free to Kennewick and Pasco families and caregivers with children birth to age 5. We also offer READY! for Kindergarten to Richland families zoned for Marcus Whitman and Jefferson elementary schools with children ages 3-5.
Once a child begins school, teachers partner with families to continue nurturing every student’s literacy skills. We proudly provide a 75-book library to first-year teachers who are in their first full-time classroom assignment since certification.
Team Read is a volunteer tutoring program to help struggling first, second and third graders develop their literacy skills. Team Read is active in seven elementary schools in the Kennewick School District.
School-age children can lose three months of reading skills in just one summer. The READ Up literacy program helps keep reading a part of daily summer routines with free books and fun events.
