Annual Rotary Book Day

Rotary Club of Barrie supports literacy with annual Rotary Book Day
Posted on 11/08/2023
On Nov. 15, all Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) Grade 2 students in Barrie and Innisfil will receive a copy of Andy & Elmer’s Apple Dumpling Adventure, thanks to a donation by the Rotary Club of Barrie. In addition, the Rotary Club has a contest opportunity for students to bake dumplings at home for a chance to win a Chromebook. Details of the contest will be distributed with each book.

Mike Grube, Rotary’s Director of Program and Information, along with Sprocket, Rotary’s mascot, will visit Portage View PS at 10 a.m. to deliver the books and read the story to students.

Aligned with the SCDSB’s commitment to developing community partnerships and our character education program, Andy & Elmer’s Apple Dumpling Adventure is a story of a young entrepreneur named Andy who, with the help of a mysterious voice providing guidance and support, learns the value of truthfulness, fairness, goodwill, and partnerships that benefit everyone involved.

This initiative links directly to the SCDSB Strategic Priorities in the area of Community and Excellence in Teaching and Learning.
