Rotarians will go into Early Childhood Education Classrooms at Community Based Organizations throughout Pittsfield and read to preschool children on Friday, March 25, 2016.Each Rotarian will bring a book to read and will then distribute that book to the entire preschool classroom. Each book will have a name plate so children can write their name inside as it will be their book to own. In addition, Rotarians will be distributing books at “The School Readiness Fair” which provides an opportunity for families to explore “learning through play” and preparing children and families for school success on March 26 at the Boys & Girls Club of Pittsfield. The fair is geared towards families of infants, toddlers, and preschool children, but elementary school-aged children are welcome to attend. Our theme for Rotary Reads and this year’s fair is STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) education. Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Pittsfield, Pittsfield Promise and the Berkshire United Way.
