SAIL Programs



Sunrise SAILing into Books is a program being offered for grades K through 5 at Roosevelt and Rossman from 7:30 until 8:00 am. This fun and educational program will help develop a love for reading. The students have the opportunity to listen to stories, read with buddies, be in book clubs, and/or read books individually. Our goal is to have our students be able to start each school day with a fun reading experience! Our targeted start time is October 4 so stay tuned for further details. You register online HERE for Sunrise SAIL.


SAIL After School Club is a program being offered for students that could benefit from increased support in reading and math at Roosevelt, Rossman, and the Boys and Girls Club. We are also supporting this learning by engaging students in STEM activities to help develop a love for science as well. If interested, please contact your child's teacher to see if this is a good option for your child. This program goes from 3:30 until 5:00 pm on Mondays through Thursdays. Our targeted start time for this program is October 4, so stay tuned for further details. You may register online HERE for After School SAIL.
