Partners And Kids Reading Alot Together (PAKRAT)
PAKRAT is a Preschool-Grade 3 child literacy and parent involvement program. It was originally started by a District teacher and expanded to all preschool through grade 3 students in our district. A summer PAKRAT component has been added so needy students can access quality literature year-round. A grant would help us provide books and cover the costs of running a summer PAKRAT bus to all elementary attendance areas in our 240 square mile district. Read more about PAKRAT
