APS Title I Story Time in the Park

Between June 7, 2021 and July 15, 2021, APS Title I will be distributing book bags at 18 summer meal sites Monday to Thursday.

Story Time in the Park is an APS Title I Family Engagement initiative that provides a book bag of quality, children’s literature, reading strategies, lesson ideas, and parent “tip-sheets” for families reading at home. Books and reading are key to preventing summer learning loss and this program was created to get books in the hands of youth!

Participating meal sites are colored red on the map and are marked with an asterisk in the list below.
