Teaching the young people around us to read is vital for their wellbeing. Reading helps increase a child’s vocabulary, helps with speaking skills and helps with their overall brain health. At Peach Plains Elementary in Grand Haven, there’s a huge commitment to reading. They believe it’s the key to everything. Working with Reading Now Network, both students and staff are growing every day in their commitment to reading.
The community around the school is also getting involved, they believe it’s the collective responsibility to spread the word of literacy around the community. Herman Miller is getting involved through their Herman Miller Care Program. They recently donated furniture for students to use, giving them a comfortable place to relax and curl up with a good book.
