Discovery Elementary Receives Literacy Grant
The Gig Harbor Garden Tour Association presented the Discovery Elementary staff with a check for $8,000 to support literacy. The grant will benefit Discovery’s reading support program by increasing volunteer and para-educator time to directly serve students in small, targeted reading groups. To facilitate consistent instruction and services for students, the grant will fund a literacy coach and volunteer coordinator stipends. Expanding Discovery’s in-school reading support program will make a difference in meeting student needs.
