Page Turners Early Literacy Tutoring Program

Page Turners provides support for students in grades K-3 who fall below grade level in reading skills.  Tutors and youth meet together on-site for half-hour sessions, twice per week at the Badger, Columbus, Foster, Highlands, Little Chute Elementary Schools, and at both Appleton and Menasha Branches.  Sessions include a Read-Aloud Story, guided reading opportunity for the youth to practice their skills and a comprehension or phonics focused activity. Students also receive a monthly book to take home and build their home libraries.  For more information or how to register for Page Turners, reach out to Ann Dudley at adudley@bgclubfoxvalley.org.
