During the month of October, students at A.W. Becker Elementary School will use their reading skill sets to benefit the Ronald McDonald House of the Capital Region (RMHC-CR). As part of this community-based project, students are encouraged to gather donations from family and friends in support of the reading they will do for the month of October. Donations raised will be used to support the families served by RMHC-CR. Learn more about the program at A.W. Becker Elementary by viewing their personalized web page.
“As we continue into the new school year, we look to find ways to engage our students with fun-filled opportunities to learn and grow,” said A.W. Becker Elementary Curriculum Content Specialist (ELA/SS), Reading Interventionist Sarah Pulcher. “The opportunity to read while helping others in our community is a great way to accomplish those goals. We look forward to seeing our students learn while helping the RMHC-CR in the process.”
According to its website, ‘Read for RMHC-CR’ is a reading-based community service program that empowers elementary and middle school students to develop lifelong skills while supporting children and families served by RMHC of the Capital Region.
