King of Kings Life Development Program has partnered with Mindful Yoga by Sherri in offering a Summer Reading/Mindfulness Program for area children looking to improve their reading skills over summer vacation. National Honor Society high school students will tutor elementary children in reading, participate in mindfulness sessions together, and build relationships. The program objectives include: instill a love for reading, learn reading strategies, improve oral fluency and reading comprehension, learn self-monitoring and regulation skills, and ultimately develop a positive relationship with their mentors.
Participants will sit together at the end of each session at a King of Kings Summer Pro Am basketball game. This 5-week program will take place at MVCC under the direction of Donelious King, founder of King of Kings and owner of DKBA, Sherri Spina, Certified Reading/Elementary Educator and Certified Yoga Instructor, and Dr. Judy Braman, of Smart Fitness Physical Therapy. Our camp is full for this year. Registration for Summer 2018 will commence in May.
