BOOK FAIRS, providing students with recreational reading for their homes. Every year our club goes into four Title 1 elementary schools to provide recreational reading books for students that they can call their won and, yes, take home. Last year the club provided $9,000, and, along with teachers. helped students select their book…approximately 1,000 books.
Rotary Club member, Sam Danner, is principal of Ivey Lane Elementary School and offers this observation.“If children struggle with reading, they’ll struggle with learning.” Thanks to the Rotary Club of Orlando our students are growing to love to read due to the club’s support with our literacy initiative. The monetary commitment has not only helped increase reading proficiency but has also boosted the self-esteem of many students across our campus!”
