Literacy Mid-South OST Programs 2021/22

COVID-19's impact on summer and after-school programming has been substantial. Literacy Mid-South and our network of out-of-school time providers have worked tirelessly to ensure the K-5 students we serve continue to be engaged in reading and literacy activities to help mitigate learning loss.

For summer and after-school 2021/22, LMS Out-of-School Time Network partners will provide a variety of programming supported by Literacy Mid-South:

  • Some will offer in-person programming supported by books from the LMS Libib Library
  • Some will offer fully virtual programming supported by books from the LMS Libib Library
  • SUMMER ONLY: Most locations will distribute Literacy Mid-South's weekly, K-5 Lit Bags containing: a RAZ printed grade-level book, related activity sheets, family newsletter, and a social-emotional learning tool
  • Some will offer in-person or remote BookNook learning experiences for K-5 students
  • Some will participate in an exciting new pilot powered by a partnership between Learning Ovations, Stand for Children, and Literacy Mid-South.
  • SUMMER ONLY: Literacy Mid-South will provide daily interactive read-aloud videos. Check out the series from 2020: Virtual Summer 2020.

Literacy Mid-South SUMMER ONLY supports will run from June 21, 2021 to August 13, 2021. Our after-school supports are ongoing.
