Hello Supporters,

With the school year coming to a close, it's time for summer fun at our little learners' program! This summer, we're putting a special emphasis on strengthening math and reading skills, areas where our community's scores tend to lag. We believe with your support, we can make a real difference in our children's education.

You can help us achieve our goals by donating math games suitable for ages 3-5 and 5-12. Additionally, we would greatly appreciate Amazon or Walmart gift cards, which will enable us to acquire the resources we need. Furthermore, we're in need of journals, pencils, and other writing materials for our book report and writing clubs.

Our aim is to ensure that our children maintain and enhance their cognitive skills over the summer break, giving them a head start when school resumes. Your support in providing these essential resources is crucial in helping us achieve this goal.

If you have any questions or would like further information about how you can support us in this endeavor, please don't hesitate to reach out to Ms. Aimee or Mr. Rose at 618-874-6505.

Thank you for considering our request and for your continued support of our little learners' program!
