Literacy Month – September 2017
Hurricane Irma took over much of the news in September – tutors’ homes damaged, the Learn to Read office closed for over a week, and lots of cleanup and some fence repair for LTR. So, October will be filled with fun activities to make up for what was lost in September! For instance, our annual Tutor- Sponsored “Student Appreciation Day Luncheon” (which is usually held in September) will be held on Wednesday, October 25, 11:30 AM at the LTR Office for students, tutors, families, volunteers and residents. Call for more information 904-826-0011.
