Growing Readers

The Growing Readers program is a collaborative effort between the Governor's Office of Student Achievement and the RESAs. During the first two years of the program, HGRESA served Saxon Elementary, Hillcrest Elementary, and Susie Dasher Elementary. During the 2nd round of grants, HGRESA served South Dodge Elementary, Pulaski Elementary, and Treutlen Elementary. A new cohort was started in 2019 with East Laurens Primary, East Laurens Elementary, Telfair Elementary, and Wilcox Elementary being served. Mrs. June Lewis serves as the Growing Readers' liaison and has attended trainings since the program started. Any questions about the program can be sent to or
