Today we kicked off RES Reads! This is a reading program that is near and dear to my heart. When my close friend and team member Cheryl Jennings died, her husband Bill wanted to keep her legacy alive by creating The Cheryl Jennings Reading Programs. Through this program, we hope kids will get excited about reading over the summer as they fall in love with some of our favorite authors. Thanks to the generosity of Bill Jennings and The Cheryl Jennings Reading Programs, each child will get to start the summer with a brand new book they get to keep and read!
We sent kids home with more information about RES Reads and a reading log to start filling out! Please help us reach our reading goal by having your child read AT LEAST 20 minutes each night--seven days a week. Our hope, of course, is that kids will read well beyond the expected 20 minutes of reading each night! Thank you for your support and for helping to keep my friend's memory alive!
If you would like to support The Cheryl Jennings Reading Programs, you can contact me, or the Northfield Savings Bank where the fund has been established. Thank you!
Cheryl Jennings learning and loving life!
Bill Jennings instilling a love of reading in my students!
