SHS Community Literacy Partnership

The purpose of the Swansea High School Community Literacy Partnership (SHS CLP) is to collaborate with the Lexington Four Community Literacy Partnership (Lex 4 CLP) to promote, encourage, and celebrate reading in Lexington School District 4 Schools and the Lexington 4 Community.

We do this by:

·         Serving as a Mentor/ Book Buddy to younger readers at Sandhills Primary School (1st and 2nd grade) and Sandhills Elementary School (3rd and 4th grade)

·         Meeting and reading with assigned younger readers at SPS and SES once per week   


·         Raising awareness of the vital role literacy plays in school and life

·         Strengthening natural partnerships between the schools and communities

·         Promoting and supporting the Lexington School District Four Summer Reading Initiatives deigned to decrease summer reading loss

·         Working to help the community connect around the issues of literacy, offering ways to network, share literacy data, and work collaboratively to improve literacy for every individual

·         Participating in school-wide community service projects designed to promote reading
