The Pembina Escarpment Reading Council (PERC) is supporting a new initiative to promote literacy in surrounding communities. This year we will be offering up to $500 to support successful designated proposals.
This initiative is in keeping with PERC’s literacy goals:
1. To improve the quality of literacy instruction at all levels
2. To develop an awareness and understanding of the impact of literacy
3. To promote development of literacy proficiency for all people
The proposal may be for a school based or community idea including but not limited to summer reading programs, Little Free Libraries, Makerspace initiatives or other activities that promote reading, writing, listening and learning in our schools and communities.
Everyone is welcome to apply: teachers, students, community members/groups,
parents - EVERYONE!!
