This digital resource provides literacy activities at each grade level, pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. Families and communities may access this resource for activities that specifically target the literacy skills of phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and oral language. When children grow in each of these foundational areas they are well on their way to becoming proficient readers.
Summer Food ProgramRegistration is now open for the 2022 Summer Food Program. This program provides home deliveries over the summer of fresh produce, pantry staples, hygiene products, and community resources to families who benefit from free or reduced breakfast and lunch for their children at school and Head Start. The program is a partnership of Partners Aligned Toward Health, Reconciliation House, TRACTOR Food and Farms, Dig In Community Garden, Yancey Schools, Yancey DSS, Yancey Public Library, Yancey Transportation Authority, and many other volunteers and organizations. Families will receive 6 total deliveries - every other week while schools are on break. Requirements for enrollment:The household must be located in Yancey County and have children in the house over the summer - any age, from infant to 17 years old. This means that if a family member is primarily responsible for feeding children in their home over the summer, you are welcome to enroll them. Please do not sign up the same children twice. Separated households need to be in agreement about where the food will be delivered to. We do not have strict income eligibility or need guidelines. Registration:The easiest way to register is to complete the online form at the bottom of this document - with both English and Spanish text. This is a different program from school meals, Harvest Share, Reconciliation House's food pantry, and other local programs. If an online registration is not possible or not easy, please complete the paper registration form that each child will be bringing home in the next few days. Please do not do both. Choose either online registration or paper registration. Return the paper registration forms to your child’s teacher. The closing date for registration is Tuesday May 17th. Thank you.

Or, if learning at home, your child can be seen via video using your smartphone, tablet or computer with a camera.
