Oceanhills is partnering with Franklin Elementary School, located less than a mile from where we worship on Sunday mornings, to show them that these students matter, that we care about them, and that we won't stand by and let scary  literacy statistics become a reality.

Email with questions & to sign up.

why local literacy?

Did you know that 2 out of 3 of students who cannot read

proficiently by the 4th grade will end up in jail or on welfare? 

Did you know that 1 out of 4 kids in America will grow up without learning to read? 

Did you know that children who don't learn how to read

proficiently by the 4th grade are most likely to drop out of school?* 

This matters.
