Welcome to the Reading Department !
    At Grantham Village School we try to provide students with the help they need to become successful learners.  Sometimes that means group support for reading proficiency, and sometimes that means individual support.  This intervention may last for a period of weeks, months, or the year.  We build on the child's strengths and offer support in their areas of need.
