On Monday, September 14, Peggy Gray and Judy Williams, Americanism Committee Chair, delivered pocket Constitutions to Fernley Intermediate School (FIS) and Silver Stage Middle School (SSMS) for distribution to their 5th grade students on Constitution Day, September 17, 2020. Pictured with Peggy and Judy are FIS Principal Rob Jacobson and three students and SSMS Principal Amber Taylor and School Secretary Crystal Viscarret.
The Fernley Republican Women (FRW) is committed to fostering literacy in the community and promoting Americanism in the schools. Each September, we participate in the National Federation of Republican Women’s Literacy Month by sponsoring literacy projects. On September 16, 2020, Literacy Chair Peggy Gray delivered dictionaries for distribution to each 3rd grade student at Cottonwood Elementary School. She and her committee members were saddened by the inability to actually accompany school staff to talk about literacy in all the classrooms and actually see the faces of the children light up as each receives a personal copy of “The Best Dictionary for Students.”
We also presented books to the Cottonwood Elementary School library. The books donated were One Flag, One America by Michelle Hirstius and Camillla Can Vote by Mary Morgan Ketchel with Senator Marsha Blackburn. Books were also donated to Bow Wow Books, an organization that teamed up with the Fernley library. Bow Wow Reading Dogs are nonjudgmental certified therapy dogs who listen to children reading aloud. The dogs' handlers have been educated on how to help readers learn to read.
A few days earlier, in time for distribution on Constitution Day to their 5th grade students, FRW donated pocket constitutions to both Silver Stage Middle School and Fernley Intermediate School. Pictured below are FRW members Peggy Gray and Judy Williams along with three students and FIS Principal Rob Jacobson; and Judy Williams with SSMS Principal Amber Taylor and School Secretary Crystal Viscarret.
