United Way Classroom Libraries drive reading success! More books - it's that simple.
Children with access to books have a better chance of becoming engaged & capable readers. Thanks to Virtus Group & Mitchell Developments, the children at Thomson Community School in the Grade 1/2 classroom, have 500+ brand new books & the infrastructure to create their very own reading oasis. Screams & squeals of laughter and excitement rang through the halls of Thomson Community School as the students unwrapped boxes upon boxes of brand new books to fill the shelves of their very own Classroom Libraries. These kids will now have constant access to books which they, themselves, selected!
To be successful, independent adults, children need a good start in life. They need access to early literacy and development programs. Youth need positive school experiences during their middle years and quality mentoring relationships with adult role models – giving them opportunities to discover and develop their unique talents and interests.
United Way Regina believes we all have a part to play in helping kids be all they can be. Together we can build a better equation for the future of our children and our community:
Kids + School x Caring Community = cradle to career success!
