Hello fellow SERRC members!
First and foremost, the SERRC Board would like to thank you for your
overwhelming response to our last presenter, R. W. Alley, illustrator of the
Paddington Bear series. We sold every one of the books we had purchased for the event! I’m sure everyone would agree that it was a fabulous evening of entertainment and professional development.
Now, it’s hard to believe that the clocks have been turned back and school has been in session for more than two months! By the time we meet again, we should be totally immersed within the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. In the spirit of that season, as has been our tradition, we once again ask that you bring an unwrapped children’s book of any level to the December dinner meeting. This year the board has decided that all the books we collect will be donated to a local homeless shelter. What better gift can we give our children during this celebrated season of giving, than the gift of literacy! There is not a more commendable way to foster and cultivate a love of reading than to share a book with a child.
We at SERRC also realize how important it is to assist
educators in supporting literacy awareness and development. Every SERRC meeting that you attend supports not only your own literacy growth but that of the students and colleagues with whom you connect, influence, and inspire daily. In keeping with the holiday spirit of giving, for those of you who were unable to attend our October meeting, the SERRC Board has voted to extend the waiver of the yearly membership fee for the month of December. Please come join us and take part in fostering and empowering the growth of literacy.
Please be advised that the dinner reservations for our December 7th meeting has to be postmarked by November 28th! Return the attached reservation page now if you have not done so already.
Don’t miss what is sure to be a fabulous evening with Barbara Masley and "The Power of the Booktalk!"
We hope you will be attending!
