WASC Partners with Room to Read!

Christine HettingerNews Notes, WASC News Feed

Greetings, Leaders!
Our annual WASC State Conference is fast approaching, and we have lots of exciting things in store! This year, we are thrilled to announce that WASC will be partnering with Room to Read, a non-profit foundation that supports education and literacy in impoverished nations.They have transformed the lives of over 11.6 million students worldwide by writing and publishing fun, interesting children’s books in local languages; training educators and librarians in innovative, engaging teaching methods; and building schools and libraries so children have a safe, inviting environment in which to learn.
We will be conducting a Miracle Minute at State Conference in April to raise money for this great cause, but in the meantime, there are tons of ways you and your school can get involved! Visit the Room to Read website, share this inspiring video with your friends and family, take a look at resources and ideas for fundraisers, or form a fundraising team. Most of all, get excited about helping others! See you at State Conference!
