Get “Kindergarten-Ready” with LRC

Camp READY! dates are set for Summer 2018, and camps are kicking off soon.
 

 
If you have a rising or repeating kindergartner, ensure they’re prepared for school and academic success by enrolling them in the Learning Resource Center’s annual kindergarten-readiness program. On average, Camp READY! students have shown growth of four to seven months from pre- to post-assessment in just four weeks. Through hands-on, experiential learning centers lead by qualified teachers, students will experience learning that is fun!
 
With art, music and movement, cooking, and reading-readiness centers, Camp READY! builds pre-reading skills while also providing a safety net to allow children more time to continue motor, social and cognitive development. Teachers will engage students in themed, rich language-laden lessons, while also providing learning opportunities for parent involvement at camp and at home.
 
The program is designed for students entering or repeating kindergarten in August 2018.
 
This year, Camp READY! is scheduled to take place at nine campsites throughout Polk County. Each camp will last a total of four weeks. Dates and times vary by location. (Please see below)
 
The cost of camp is $25 for the entire month and includes a shirt.
 
Camp will wrap up with a parent program on the final day, where parents will be invited to watch their child in a performance showcasing what they learned at camp.

Study Habits for Highly Successful Students

Middle School and High School students identified and practiced strategies to improve organization and time management skills, test-taking techniques, critical thinking, listening and focusing tips, and effective communication in a week-long class at LRC Offices.
 

ACT, SAT, GRE, and TOEFL Test Prep

LRC is offering test preparation to students with myriad needs this summer. Students hoping to secure a Bright Futures Scholarships or college acceptance are enrolled in classes at the LRC Center.
