A CICS Bucktown favorite, our annual “Books for Breakfast” event took place on Friday, November 15. We invited members of our community to enjoy breakfast with us and then read to our students. In each classroom, participants read short stories, poems, or excerpts from their favorite books.
In order to foster a love of reading, it is important that children see adults enjoying literature. We are thankful to have so many adults eager to share their love of reading with our students. We were even fortunate enough to host guest speakers, Dr. Beth Purvis, CEO of Chicago International Charter Schools and David Sundstrom of Distinctive Schools.
