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!

All of the Head Start classrooms had a blast when Officer Donovan of the Chicago Police Department came for a visit. Officer Donovan read to the scholars, answered all of their questions and made sure they each knew that the emergency number was 9-1-1!
