Young children need to be encouraged to read. Our Rotary Club will purchase carefully chosen picture books and create teacher/family activities for the classroom and families. This will encourage students to read and promote family interaction in the children's experience of reading. This will be done between October 2019 & May 2020. The club members will each read to one or more classes, give out the books and explain the activities. There are approx. 400 students in grades 1-3. the Grant and monies from the club will cover the cost of the books and the activity programs.
Because of the Covid-19 virus and the schools losing, we are unable to complete our project.We are converting the balance of the funds to a project with the Greenburgh Police Dept. and Feeding Westchester. The program will provide food to Seniors and needy children.
