Grant dollars at work with JCAC SOAR program

This past spring, Kim Sellers and Carla Brown, Jefferson City Academic Center (JCAC) teachers, we awarded $500 in grant money to accommodate the needs of the JCAC Service Opportunities for Active Readers (SOAR) program. The students in the JCAC SOAR program partnered with West Elementary students in an event to promote and establish good reading habits and develop a love of reading. Scholastics generously donated books to assist with the program's need to provide and promote good reading habits to the younger students.
