March is Reading Month and at Godfrey Lee Early Childhood Center they are celebrating in a very special way. The students and teachers were joined by Read GR, a partner organization of Reading is Fundamental. Today they stopped by the school to give out free books to the students.
It’s something they do twice a year with their partner schools. RIF and Read GR feels it’s very important to create a culture of literacy both in schools and at home. Kids at the school get a chance to select the books they want to read and take home with them to keep. Many of the students at Godfrey Lee Early Childhood Center don’t have home libraries, this helps to keep kids reading all year long.
