We’ve had a great summer so far.
In June, Lakeshore Drive Baptist Church in Weatherford blessed families in Presidio with bookcases, books, and basketball. Three 90-minute sessions of basketball and a 3-on-3 tournament. Teachers at the local school, parents, and the children themselves, all appreciated the 15-20 books given to each child. The kids loved decorating their own bookcases!
Four more family reading fairs are in the planning stages for this fall, at other locations along the border.
Throughout June and July, we gave some books to Agape Baptist Church in Cleburne as they provide meals and day camp activities to children in their community. We were amazed at the level of care and teaching the leaders of that program provided for seven straight weeks.
We’re excited about 11 ESL teacher training workshops across the state coming this fall.
Next on the agenda is the Literacy Texas Annual Conference.
