"September is Basic Education and Literacy Month"
The Rotary Club of Columbus, in partnership with the 19-20 District Grants program, expands the ‘I Like Me’ project to over 1200 students.
For the 2019-2020 Club Grant Project, Club President Lynn Lucas selected an expanded ’ I Like Me’ Book Project for the Club. With the Approval of the District and Rotary International Grant Committees, additional financial support was given to expand the project and time to put in place the necessary fundraising steps to sustain the expanded project.
‘I Like Me’ is a beautifully written and illustrated book that is individualized with names important to each individual student. The book encourages reading and emphasizes the worth of each individual student and includes a guide for their teachers for enhanced student enjoyment.
The club project goals are:
1) To deliver an I Like Me Book to every Kindergarten Student in a school, public or private, in Bartholomew County- which will mean the printing, purchase and delivery of just over 1,200’ I Like Me’ Books.
2) To include all students enrolled during both semesters of the school year by doing both a Fall and Spring book delivery.
3) To Expand the Project Organizing Team.
4) To include students in the project team to help with different phases through the project with the goal for starting an Interact Club and involving students going to Rotary Youth Leadership Awards . The Final Goal is to have Rotarians read an’ I Like Me Book’ in every classroom where books are delivered.
Sincerely, Santhana, DG
