DON’T FORGET……..Grab Your Hat and Read With The Cat! Celebrate March’s READ ACROSS AMERICA

Twenty years ago, the National Education Association (NEA) decided to do something BIG to get kids excited about reading. They called it NEA’s Read Across America. Launched and celebrated annually on Dr. Seuss’s birthday, March 2, it was-and still is-the largest celebration of reading this country has ever seen. This March, we ask you to join us in celebrating this great initiative by participating in our project with your children at home or in the classroom!

CFCE Families Honors our Veterans

img_2307Yesterday at SHI CFCE's monthly Parent Child Program…Discovery Workshop….kids and parents honored our veterans and learned about the White Table. In this hour long program school aged children and their parents were introduced to the white table, a symbol for and remembrance to service members fallen, missing, or held captive in the line of duty.

For one family this experience was exceptionally moving, and mom said….. 

"I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for having this…it meant so much to me but even more for my son…He cried a bit while setting the table up, for him it is so personal as it is for me, but for him to do this today was very healing"

To help CFCE honor our veterans this holiday season, please participate in our Thank A Veteran Project

Self Help Inc CFCE thanks all of our Veterans for their service and bravery
