St. Dominic Catholic Church has donated 102 new books to young readers at Amidon Elementary School. The books cover a wide range of topics, including rain forests, sports, and geology. The purpose of the program is to help families build home libraries and encourage children to read over the summer break. Last year, the church gave 65 new books to second grade Amidon students.
“The parish is pleased to provide reading material to children in the Southwest community,” said St. Dominic Pastor George Schommer. “This program began last year after several teachers in the parish suggested giving books to children as a way to encourage literacy and good reading habits. We believe that cultivating good reading habits now will help these children succeed in school as they get older.”
