Tome, Lea, Comparta!
Rx for Reading is excited to announce our new collaboration with the César Chávez Academy in Southwest Detroit. The early elementary school is now home to an Rx for Reading community library, which was given to the school along with a collection of 400 children’s books to help keep it filled. All students at the school are invited to “Take, Read, Share!” / “Tome, Lea, Comporta!”
“I love to see the children choosing books and donating them to the Lorax library.”
Lauri Cobb, Intervention Teacher, César Chávez Early Elementary (and our partner on the ground!)
“I’ve never seen anything like it!”
Arely Valencia, parent and one-on-one aide at César Chávez
Rx for Reading also sponsored the school’s celebration of El día de los niños / El día de los libros (Children’s Day/Book Day), providing a brand new book for every one of the school’s 455 kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd graders. Two Detroit Mercy alums, Marco Ineguez-Vera (BSN-Nursing) and Ana Barajas (Honors Biology), read to students at the event.
