The Proviso East High School chapter of the National Honor Society will host Breakfast with Santa in the Proviso East cafeteria from 9 a.m. to noon on December 14.
Breakfast with Santa is designed to promote literacy at home. Each child who attends will receive a free breakfast, a picture with Santa, and a book. All parents will receive a free breakfast along with strategies and ideas to help promote reading in the home.
Proviso East has placed an increased focus on literacy in their curriculum for the last three years. Last year, Proviso East High School boosted the percentage of students who met or exceeded state standards on the reading portion of the state tests by 11.5 percent from 2012. The National Honor Society believes that these types of changes can start with a book and a family reading together.
The National Honor Society still needs additional support from the community to make this event possible. For more information, contact Ms. Ashley Glickman, National Honor Society sponsor, at (708)404-4313 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope all members of the community can join us for breakfast, books, and Santa. VFP
