University City Back to School Book Drive
August 1, 2017 @ 8:00 am - August 15, 2017 @ 5:00 pm UTC+0
We are all set to begin our first University City Connect Book Drive, August 1st thru August 15th. Why books? Study after study has shown the importance of mastering the art of reading by the 3rd grade so children can then begin to read to learn. Not mastering reading sets a child back and can easily discourage them from excelling in all the other subjects. The books listed in the flyer (attached flyer and poster) are part of the CMS curriculum. The bonus is they can read them again and again as these will be their very own copies.
