The BASIC organization that runs the Circle of Art and provides scholarships and educational programs in Borrego is in full summer swing. They are sponsoring a Summer Reading Academy for local students to give them a boost in reading proficiency. It started today with 20 students and is held at the Steele/Burnand Anza-Borrego Desert Research Center in Borrego. It is the first year of the program and is off to a great start. See Borrego Sun newspaper article, “Wild About Reading Academy: Steele/Burnand UCI Hosts Summer Program. Also see Borrego Sun article about the results of the summer reading program here.
