NOVEMBER 12TH READING CLUBS;
COLLEGE ITEMS WANTED
Click here to submit your RSVP to read at our Wonders of
Science & Technology reading clubs on November 12th. We still need 319 more volunteers, so please also ask your friends to join you.
November is also our college spirit month, and we want to give each child who attends something small with a college insignia on it.
If you can obtain college-related items, stickers are always a hit with the younger kids. For the older kids we like to give them pins/buttons, pens, pencils, notebooks, etc. But really, anything with a college logo will help plant the seeds of college interest.
If you work at or have a connection with a college, please help us by asking for a donation of items with that college's insignia. If you like, you can
click this link for a request letter/email you can send.
Great sources of items with your college's logo are the
athletic department and the bookstore!
To "sponsor" one grade at one school, we need about 40 of one item. To sponsor all of one grade at all 8 schools, then we need about 300 of one item. And anything in between would be very helpful!
CRAFTS & CURRICULUM MEETING THIS SUNDAY, 10/23
