United Way "Real Men Read" Program

Through a continued partnership with the United Way of the Wyoming Valley, State Street Elementary is thrilled to initiate the "Real Men Read" program for the 2019-2020 school year.  This program is designed to allow male volunteers from the community to visit with kindergarten classes to stress the importance of reading and act as a mentor/friend.  Studies have shown that children do not necessarily equate reading with men.  The hope is that by implementing this program, State Street and the United Way of Wyoming Valley can change that misconception and help to mold some positive reading habits.
