Photo gallery: Reading College kicks off with barbecue and fun

Reading College has expanded to include students from 10 elementary schools with Red Deer Public Schools.

It’s the sixth summer for the free, four-week literacy enrichment program developed by The Foundation for Red Deer Public Schools. Held at Red Deer College in July for students at the end of Grade 2, teachers provide support to improve their reading and writing skills.
