Write, Read, Write

Students in a chosen fourth grade class each write a letter to one of our members. The members purchase a book that seems suitable for their 'pen pal', and send the gift along with a letter back to their student. The students get a book especially chosen for them and have the opportunity to write a thank you letter. This program promotes both reading and writing skills. Coordinator: Paulette Soloman or Marie Olshefski
