      Did You Know: Children who do not read on-level by the end of Grade 3 have only a 1 in 8 chance of catching up and are 4x more likely to drop out of high school. Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation 

       

      We're excited to partner with Yellowstone Academy for our 2017 Community Involvement Initiative. Yellowstone Academy’s mission is to provide a high quality faith-based education exclusively to students from economically disadvantaged families that will prepare them for academic success in high school, college, and beyond. For more information on this incredible institution, watch their video here or visit their website www.yellowstoneacademy.org

       

      Leaders within Yellowstone Academy are continuing their strong effort to build literacy within the school. By collecting new to gently-loved books reading level Pre-K to High School, Yellowstone is ensuring that not only do they have a robust library, but that students also have reading options at home. IREM Members are invited to drop off any donated books at the IREM office by May 25th. You may also have books shipped to the IREM office at 5851 San Felipe, Suite 235 Houston, TX 77057. Office hours are 8 am - 4 pm. You can download a flyer for the fundraiser here to share with others. 

       

      Additionally, the committee hopes to raise monetary funds to donate to Yellowstone Academy in support of their efforts to update their hallways, classroom resources, play area, and other aspects of the school to ensure the students have all that is needed to receive a well rounded education. To make a monetary contribution, please click here and use "Yellowstone" in invoice field or contact the IREM Office by email.

       

      In honor of April being National School Library Month, IREM also plans to host a "Book It To IREM" Day in which we'll have balloons, treats and fun take-aways for anyone who drops off books or funds on Friday, April 28th.
