Up-Comming Events - Raise A Reader Day

Every September the Raise A Reader campaign is from 9 am to 1, so come on out and support a worthy program. As well, our annual Spelling BEE, creates quite a "BUZZ" of fun and donations as teams compete to win the coveted BEE Trophy and support literacy.

Did you know that 42% of adults struggle to read?

Developing good literacy skills at any early age significantly increases a child’s chance of success in life!
