We help Kenwood School Students

Oakmont KIwanis Club supports students and teachers at the Kenwood Elementary School this year and every year. We recently received wonderful thank you letters from the 2nd grade students and their teachers for purchasing dictionaries for all 2nd grade students to use in school , keep and use at home. On gosh, I wish you could see the letters of appreciation. The letters are all in one book for easy reading. Now that I think about it, you could see the appreciation book of letters. We invite you to our breakfast meeting at the Berger Center on Thursday mornings. Breakfast is at 8am followed by the meeting, 8:30-9:30am. Contact President Fran Lazzarini by Email at franlazz43@aol.com or phone 928-202-1105. We need new members always. At a recent meeting , Charles Ensley, read thank you letters for donations we made to the Santa Rosa Boys and Girls Club, the Redwood Food Bank, and the Valley of the Moon Children’s Home. The home is in need of Arts and Crafts Kits, side walk chalk, colored pencils and flip flops. If you would like to make a donation of any of these items contact Fran or better yet, bring them to a meeting and find out about the many services we do to help children, families, schools and the community. I would like to quote from some of the letters from the Kenwood School 2nd graders. Their teachers are doing a great job using the dictionaries for a teaching experience. It is amazing to think that 2nd graders could write such well through out letters. They are truly a sight to see and we are proud of the students and their teachers.
“Dear Kiwanis Club, thank you for my first dictionary! I am going to use it to impress my family, sincerely, Sabine”. Max writes, “Thank you for my super special, amazingly super, cool dictionary. I know how to use it. My teacher”s taught me. I love my new dictionary.” Teachers Patricia Ehn and Sharon Watson wrote,” Our students were over the moon excited about this gift.” We hope you are excited too about the education these students are getting and will want to join us in the service we do for children and the community.
