Project Leader: Nicholas Goebeler
Neighborhood/School: Eastside Elementary + Ferger Place
The Ferger Place Neighborhood Association will connect with students and families at their neighborhood school, Eastside Elementary, through a reading program and community event based on Dr. Seuss’s book, The Lorax. Kindergarten families at East Side Elementary School will be given a personal copy of the book to read over the summer. In the fall, these families will celebrate their reading achievement through a neighborhood-wide party that brings the book to life through an outdoor showing of the movie and tree-planting activities to reinforce the book’s environmental themes.
