Great news: PAWS for Reading is back

After an extended break, Lucy and Trinity will be back & ready to hear your children read.

We tragically lost Liz Buckheister last fall, but her husband Bill Gawthrop, who has also been through the training for this program will be stepping in to get the program going again.  

Bill will be here Wednesdays from 6-7:30 on April 29, May 6 & 20, June 3 & 24.  This program is specifically for new readers or children who are working to improve their reading.

Please call 248-650-7140 to reserve a 15 minute time slot for your child.

 Polar Express was a wonderful evening!  Thanks to all who attended and helped!
