Stop, Drop and Read

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

It will be a fun family night on Feb. 25 at the Student Activities Center of IU South Bend. It will be the second installment of “Stop, Drop and Read” from 6 to 8 p.m. The evening is sponsored by the Marketing and Advertising Club of IU South Bend.

Students (grades kindergarten through fifth) have been invited from areas schools - Perley, Nuner and McKinley- to participate. The evening consists of a dodgeball game with fathers, a chance to read with their children and a little pizza and soda pop.
Books have been donated by Better World Books.
James Camren, president of the Marketing and Advertising Club, said they had the reading event last year and had about 150 to 200 participants. The evening was highly successful. “We were thanked and congratulated by the attendees,” Camren said. It gives parents and children some time together for the important job of reading.
