Email News Alerts

Some of Perham’s youngest students will be getting an extra leg-up on literacy next year.

Kids in pre-kindergarten through third grade will have the opportunity to work on their reading skills with tutors through the Minnesota Reading Corps. The corps will be providing two tutors at Heart of the Lakes Elementary School, as it has in past years, along with two new tutors at Kids Adventure, a school readiness and early childhood special education program.
