2018 Children’s Defense Fund – Freedom School


Covenant United Methodist Church is excited about partnering again with the Children’s Defense Fund (CDF) Freedom School for the summer of 2018.

The objective of the CDF Freedom School program is to build strong, literate, and empowered children who are prepared to make a differnce in themselves, their families, communities, nation and world.  By providing reading enrichment for children who might otherwise not have access to books, the CDF Freedom Schools program plays a much needed role in helping curb summer learning loss and close achievement gaps.

This year’s program begins June 18, . 2018 and ends July 27, 2018, Monday through Friday, 8:00 am – 3:30 pm.  This year we will add a new level for our scholars Level 3, (grades 6 through 8).  Level 1 (scholars entering into the 1st grade through 2nd).  Level 2 (grades 3 through 5th).

Registration is scheduled for April 6th and 7th, 2018 from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm.  Parents will be notified of acceptance by May

11, 2018.
