School district receives Read to be Ready grant

Thanks to the Tennessee Department of Education, the Cheatham County School District has received another Read to be Ready grant to fund our successful Summer Reading Camps.
We are one of 218 recipients to receive the grant, which will fund tuition-free, month-long literacy-focused summer camps that target rising first, second and third graders.
This year, the camps will be held June 3-28 at Ashland City Elementary School, East Cheatham Elementary School and Kingston Springs Elementary School.
This year’s camps will provide students with access to at least 80 hours of literacy-focused instruction and enrichment, including field trips, during the summer. Students will also receive about 20 new books for their home library.
Students selected to participate in the camps will be contacted by the district.
This is the third year that the district has received a Read to be Ready grant.
