Students and families were able to pick up books throughout the summer to help improve their reading skills

Each year hundreds of young children disconnect in the summer, making it much harder in the fall to succeed academically. As a result, Wayne-Westland Community Schools loaded up the buses to bring BUSting with Learning. This initiative, in its second year, provided free literacy resources to kindergarten through third-grade students in the community.

"Literacy is the catalyst for all learning. This important initiative helps reinforce literacy in the next generation and bridge early literacy gaps," said Wayne-Westland Community Schools Superintendent John Dignan.

Throughout the summer, District staff and school buses visited elementary schools in the district. Students and families picked up books, school supplies and materials while having a little fun with games and activities.

Buses also cruised through the community, passing out books to children in the neighborhoods.
