Programs get funds for summer learning

July 06, 2006

With support from the Verizon Foundation, the Center for Summer Learning at The Johns Hopkins University has selected 10 summer program providers across Maryland, including Washington County Public Schools, to distribute books and engage children in enriching summer learning activities on Summer Learning Day, Thursday, July 13.

Ten local programs will receive $1,500 each to support their Summer Learning Day events. These funds, provided by the Verizon Foundation, will be used to purchase books, materials, and supplies to support learning activities for children in conjunction with Summer Learning Day.

Summer Learning Day is designed to focus local, state and national attention on the issue of summer learning and build public support for a broad range of programs that send children back to school ready to learn. Events are designed to draw critical attention to the need for summer literacy activities for young people.
