Get a look at a few of our great Chalmers neighbourhood partners “in action” recently!…Frontier College’s Bookworms program, in partnership with Lord Selkirk School, welcomed members of the Winnipeg Police Service as guest readers to celebrate “I Love to Read” month. Constable Hyde and the Cadets Ryan & Tanner read to the group of excited participants. In addition to the great stories, all 3 stayed and played literacy based board games and activities and had fun interacting with the students. Smiles, laughter and good times had by all! Thank you to the Winnipeg Police Service for sharing your love of reading with us! If you are interested in learning more about these activities, please contact Dale directly at (204)669-0750 or drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or FB
