HFW Challenge Fundraiser
The Lilja PTA, with help from MaryLynne Gyster in the Literacy Center, has set up a fundraiser that we hope everyone will buzz about! Each Grade has a list of High Frequency Words that the children work towards mastering by the end of the year. 10 HFW from each level have been chosen as pledge words. 50% of the proceeds from this fundraiser will be given to Dog B.O.N.E.S., of MA therapy dog program. This dedicated group of volunteers and their canines provide support throughout our community. One such way is through the Reading Partner Program, where children get to read to a therapy dog, either individually or in a small group setting. These sessions provide comfort and motivation while enhancing literacy skills and self esteem. Every child that turns in a pledge sheet will be placed in a lottery for a Reading Partner session with Maisy and Ms. Marcher. Pledge sheets, HFW lists to study and complete fundraiser information will be coming home this week. Find out more about Dog B.O.N.E.S. at therapy dog.info. If you have any questions about the fundraiser, please contact Linsey Evans.
