One chapter at a time

Alpha Omega Chapter of Tri Kappa recently presented a chapter book to every second-grade student in the Clay Community School Corporation. One of Tri Kappa's state projects is literacy, so the local chapter chose second-graders, because they are starting to read chapter books. Tri Kappa is a philanthropic organization with the goal of furthering education, culture and charity. The members give back to the community in the form of scholarships and donations to the YMCA of Clay County's Strong Kids Campaign, skate park, needy families and other school and community projects. The state organization provides scholarship, supports projects at Riley Children's Hospital, Camp Riley for Children, and the Hoosier Art Salon, while providing a historic art collection at the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.

Yeah! Great job Tri Kappa! Getting kids to read and enjoy reading is a wonderful thing! Now, go read those books kids! :)
