SPEC to host ‘Tis the Season for Reading’

Saints Promoting Education Careers will host an evening of holiday stories, crafts and snacks for children from kindergarten to third grade this Friday, Dec. 8 on the Seward County Community College campus. Each child attending will also receive a free book to take home. The event will take place in Room SU 114 E & W, upstairs in the Student Union from 5:45 to 7 p.m.

Members of SPEC are education majors, and “Tis the Season” gives them a chance to interact with elementary-age children in a fun environment as well as plan an educational activity, according to Janice Northerns, club advisor.

“It’s also a way for them to serve the community,” she said. “It’s important for club members to recognize that volunteer service will be a component of their adult lives.”

The event is free, but limited to the first 50 children who sign up. Parents can make reservations by contacting Northerns at (620) 417-1456 or emailing at janice.northens@sccc.edu. When making reservations include name, phone number and grade level of each child attending.  The deadline for reservations is 4 p.m. Dec. 7.
