This month, Lisha Kill Middle School has teamed up with their school community to promote literacy among students while simultaneously supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region (RMHC-CR).

Read for RMHC-CR is a reading-based community service program that gives participants the opportunity to use their individual skills and interests to support children and families served by RMHC of the Capital Region. Donations collected are used to give love and support to families dealing with serious childhood illnesses and injuries.

As part of these ongoing efforts, Lisha Kill invited guest readers to campus to read their favorite books to the students.

“We thought this was a fun way to engage the students through reading and support a great cause at the same time,” said Lisha Kill Principal Dr. Tresansky. “Today, we will have several athletes from UAlbany spending the morning with our students and reading various books, and this afternoon we will welcome Spectrum News anchor Julie Chapman to share her many talents with our students.”

Individuals looking to support the cause can donate until March 31.  Lisha Kill will have a Hats On for RMHC next Friday, March 31.   This will be our culminating activity for this charity.
