Sandfly Women Business Owner’s Coalition Supports National Reading Day at Hancock Day School
Friday, January 12th, 2018
The Sandfly Women Business Owner’s Coalition will promote literacy efforts on National Reading Day, Tuesday, Jan. 23, by spending time at Hancock Day School reading to first- and second-grade students at 1 p.m.
“Our hope is to gather other entrepreneurs in the area to join us for this worthwhile cause,” said Dr. Angela Canfield, a coalition member. “We are excited to share our love for reading with these young students, and what better gift can we give to our children than the encouragement of literacy?”
National Reading Day is an annual event held across the country to celebrate and encourage reading by younger children. A key part of this effort is to find business partners for local schools and encourage guest readers to visit classrooms.
