Dedicated to the well-being and education of the children in our community.
Quest is our Summer Reading Program and begins this Thursday!
In the Spring, school counselors in KISD and NISD invite students (grades Kinder-2nd) to our Summer Enrichment Program. These are students who have been identified by their teachers as struggling readers and who are on the free-and-reduced lunch program.
We have 108 children registered for Quest this summer!
Quest is held at Westlake Academy in Westlake, TX.
Their beautiful facility allows us the opportunity to continue growing our program and create memorable experiences for the children who participate.
Thank you to the entire staff at Westlake Academy!
Community Storehouse hires reading teachers from local districts to work with our students and for 3 weeks, this highly trained teaching staff, along with about 25 volunteers per day, work together to make sure our students make measurable progress in reading and begin to identify themselves as readers.
When children begin to feel good about themselves as readers, they begin to feel successful and become open to increased learning on many levels. In addition to reading instruction, music, art, science, and physical education are available daily. A light breakfast, snack, and lunch are provided to ensure that nutritional needs are being met and to help keep them energized for the day's activities.
This will be our 6th year to put on the Summer Enrichment Program. We have witnessed wonderful and consistent results each year, due to the quality of instruction and the efforts of our amazing teachers and caring volunteers.
Volunteers, individual donors, businesses and other local partners have helped us to make Quest an amazing program, and we would be so happy if you could come out and see it in action! The program runs from July 10th through August 1st from 8:30-1:30 Monday-Friday. Tours typically take only about 30 minutes, but will leave a lasting impression! To schedule a tour, please call our office at 817-431-3340. This program is made possible because of our generous donors and funded by grants!
