Yesterday I went to a garage sale and made two great finds: a book by one of my favorite mystery writers and an old friend who agreed that joining the board of Windy Row might be just the kind of community participation she was looking for. My delight at her enthusiasm completely overwhelmed my delight in the book--because serving on and building the board of Windy Row is extremely gratifying. Give us a call if you would like to find out for yourself.
On September 23, the Peterborough Woman's Club is holding a Ladies Movie Night in honor of Windy Row Learning Center. Come join us at the Peterborough Community Theater at 6:15 for free refreshments; the fun musical "Hairspray" starts at 7, bouffants, flips and all. Tickets are $7. Enjoy a great evening out and help give a child the gift of learning.
On September 28, Windy Row will be participating in the Peterborough, NH Wellness Festival, as we do every year. Visit our booth in the Town House and let your kids pick out a fun eraser while you learn more about the services and people of Windy Row Learning Center. I'll be manning (womanning?) the booth for most of the day, so stop by and let me know what you think of these blogs and what new topics would interest you.
If you want to keep up with the latest information about Windy Row and research into dyslexia, please sign up for our quarterly newsletter, which includes articles about children and adults with reading challenges who have succeeded in school and life. Send us an info [at] windyrow.org (email) with "newsletter" in the subject line.
Windy Row recently received two grants, one for scholarships from the NH Charitable Foundation and another from Target to support our upcoming One in Ten program, which will educate teachers at all grade levels, including preschool, on the signs of dyslexia and dyscalculia (the math equivalent of dyslexia). When teachers know what to look for, they can respond with the appropriate help and referrals.
Looking forward to seeing you at the Woman's Club Ladies Night on September 23 and at the Wellness Fesitval on September 28!
