NAESP Foundation has partnered with United Way to bring you a great literacy focused fundraiser for your school!
The research is consistent and clear: Despite reading’s critical importance, over 60% of all 3rd graders in the U.S. are not reading proficiently.
This program is a chance to instill a love of reading in children while still having fun!
The United Way Club Connect Adopt-a-School Program is a partnership between the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) and United Way to provide resources to improve early grade reading levels to the schools most in need.
This is the only educational program funded, supported, and marketed on a nationwide basis, and available in all communities in the country, by both United Way and the NAESP.
