Thank you SitStayRead for joining our Summer Adventure program!

August 19, 2016

The Summer Adventure program was recently featured in the e-newsletter of SitStayRead! The literacy nonprofit uses dogs as a tool to improve reading and foster a love of literature among children in low-income neighborhoods. As part of Rowe Elementary’s community programming, a group of SitStayRead volunteers and their dogs visited the Settlement for Tail Blazers, Little Buddies and Poetry Pals!

Meet Nayeli, Shep and Nancy!



Reading Fun at Summer Adventure!

For the first time ever, scholars of the Summer Adventure 2016 are participating in a summer version of 1,2,3 Let’s Read – which is a reading incentive program; for each chapter/book read scholars receive a reading dollar. Scholars are given the opportunity to read for at least 30 minutes daily; in the photos you can see scholars proudly displaying their hard earned reading prizes.
