Dunrankin Drive celebrates conclusion of Slamdunk! Hoops, Numbers and Books, a literacy and numeracy program
On May 8, Dunrankin Drive Public School will host the closing ceremony to the school's Slamdunk! Hoops, Numbers and Books program. The after-school program focused on identifying key areas for student growth and providing different reading strategies to foster literacy.
34 students were placed in the program and paired with student-mentors from Lincoln M. Alexander secondary school who helped them develop key numeracy and literacy strategies. The program recognized the importance of physical activity and ended each session with basketball drills and games.
