New Books for Jefferson Elementary from Alpha Chi Honor Society

A Visit from Riffington
Alpha Chi member with
Jefferson students
Members of Alpha Chi, a national college honor society, visited Jefferson Elementary this month with a gift of new books for kindergarten students to take home.

The group has partnered with Reading is Fundamental (RIF) and made childhood literacy a priority for their organization’s outreach efforts.

They collected new books from their members to present to the students.

The visit to Jefferson included an appearance by Riffington, the official mascot for Reading Is Fundamental, and a gift of two books -- one student’s choice, and the other "Bein’ With You This Way," a book that celebrates our differences and similarities.
