Third Grade Literacy/Student Home Libraries

Each year, the Rotary Club of Springdale purchases three books for each third grade student in the Springdale Public School District. Students who have books to read at home are likely to read more than students who do not, and reading is critical to student success. Books are selected for the students based on the students' individual reading levels as assessed by their teachers. Members of our Club visit each classroom to talk with students about Rotary and community service, the importance of reading and education, and to present the books to the students. Book Delivery Day is one of our Favorite Days in Rotary!
