As 2012 starts and the calendars fill up, people reflect on the past year, try to keep their resolutions and think about how they can improve their lives in the coming year.
One important way that we can improve our lives – and our community in the process — is to make a difference in a child’s life.
In September 2011 the Allentown School District launched the Start Your Day Right before-school program in nine of our elementary schools. Presently, over 330 ASD elementary students are now benefiting from additional academic support, physical activity and connecting with community members. Beyond the academic and fitness activities, the students are learning manners, how to take turns and how to persevere.
Now we need your help. As the weather has turned cold, enrollments have increased. In order to continue to deliver a quality experience for the children and support their academic achievement, we continue to recruit additional volunteers.
Further information can be found at: http://www.allentownsd.org/allentownsd/lib/allentownsd/nr40volunteer.pdf
If you are interested or have questions about this program and how to get involved, please contact me at x1643 or Shaina.Dymond@desales.edu.
Many thanks and I look forward to hearing back from you!
