This will be pretty quick. Recently, several of us went to Crawford Elementary for their annual Back to School Resource Fair. The purpose was to promote several ROP programs for kids and parents, but while there, the school’s director of after-school programming and our main contact handed me a stack of “thank you notes” from students for the back packs and supplies ROP was able to provide to every student in the school a couple weeks ago.
ROP was only able to bless the students, their families and the school in this tangible way thanks to the partnership and support of Cherry Hills Community Church, Valor High School and the many individuals who contributed to our “School Supplies” project. This is really huge not only for the school but also ROP’s relationship with the school, as evidenced by Crawford’s new Principal, Michael Abdale, coming to our table, introducing himself and expressing his personal thanks for the back packs and supplies.
So, I know I have expressed our thanks to all who contributed to this project before, but this time I want to pass along the thanks of the students supported by just a few of their Thank You Notes.
We still have room for a few more people to join our awesome Reading Mentoring team. This semester the program begins with training on Wednesday, 9/5, at 3:15 p.m. at Crawford. The program runs every Wednesday after that from 3:15 to 5 p.m. for 10 weeks. This program offers an incredibly powerful way to impact a child’s life. Please contact me if you are interested or just have questions.
