SAN MIGUEL, Calif. — Pleasant Valley School received a $4000 grant from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation to promote youth literacy programs.

“The RACE is usually won by roadrunners because they are responsible, scholarly, polite, and enthusiastic.”
This initiative will benefit children in grades one through six (approximately 60). The money will be used to buy book sets for novel studies at various reading levels. Kids will be split into small groups of 3-6 students with comparable reading levels, with each group being led by a teacher or paraeducator. In an extended literacy session, students will dive deeply into a book. The goal is for all children to improve their reading skills and develop a love of reading as a result of this literacy journey.
