11.11.11 Dallas Reading Initiative & Veteran’s Day

November 14, 2011

At 11:11 on November 11, 2011, volunteers from across the city joined together to read to Dallas ISD students for 11 minutes to promote the importance of reading.

ChildCareGroup was happy to participate in the 11.11.11 community-wide literacy campaign thanks volunteers from United Way, State Farm and Baylor Hospital.

Here are some pictures from our classrooms!

But that’s not all!

In honor of Veterans Day, our MLK Center invited Crystal Hailey, an active member of the United States Army, to spend the afternoon at the center speaking to our classrooms about her role in the military. It’s never too early to teach children the importance of Veterans Day. Crystal, thank you for serving our country!
