April is National Poetry Month
April is National Poetry Month celebrating the expressiveness and pure delight of bringing words to life through poetry. In partnership with United Way of Delaware, Girl’s Inc., The Promoting Safe and Stable Families Program, and First State Community Action Agency will feature a one-of-a-kind interactive Storytelling opportunity Griot Mama Chomia. Mama Chomia gave an exceptional performance for the students attending Girl’s Inc. Learning Pod on Wednesday, April 21st @ 1:30 pm.
Our goal is to feature Griot Mama Chomia to encourage children to read and write, which research has shown us is critically important to prepare our children for academic excellence. Children who do not read proficiently by third grade are four times more likely to drop out of high school than those who read proficiently. Showing our students, by your example, the joy of reading will help motivate them to celebrate the power of words and create a community of readers. We hope you know how much our community appreciates you!
