From Iron Mountain Senior Class All-Night Graduation Committee:
In an effort to raise funds for the Iron Mountain senior class all-night graduation party, we received a cash donation from a young Kingsford couple. They donated their entire deposit while we were returning ours. The refund amounted to $140. We would like to take this opportunity to thank KrisAnn and Chuck for their generosity.
The class will be accepting cans and/or deposit donations at Econo Foods on Saturday, April 19, at which time they will be bagging groceries.
From Judy Place, President, Upper Peninsula Association for the Education of Young Children:
Young children in Michigan's Upper Peninsula deserve the best that we can give them.
The 2014 Week of the Young Child, April 6-12, is a time to recognize the needs of young children and thank the adults involved in their education and care. Parents, teachers, caregivers, and other adults play important roles in the lives of young children, and Week of the Young Child celebrates their efforts.
We can show support for early learning in our community by promoting early literacy programs, thanking teachers who care for our children, and working to ensure that our public policies support early learning for all young children.
Week of the Young Child is a time to remind us that Early Years are Learning Years.
