Leap Frog is gearing up for its third annual Firecracker Bash! It will be on July 3rd at the Lyric. There will be a contest to crown Mr. and Mrs. America, musical entertainment by The Bouffants, silent auction items, good food, and plenty of dancing! The Leap Frog Program is a non-profit after-school tutoring and mentoring program for at-risk 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders in the Oxford City and Lafayette County schools. The program serves 140 students, with no charge to their families. Students who attend Leap Frog benefit from an hour of one-on-one tutoring and a mentoring hour twice a week. Leap Frog is able to keep this program running without charging the families through fundraisers like this. Leap Frog recently ended the 2013/2014 school year with 78% of its students reading grade level!!!! Their goal was to have 75%!
