"Keep on counting in the free world."
Jade Rodriguez requested supplemental math books for the Craycroft Elementary school library to align with the Sunnyside School District mathematics curriculum. The Rincon Rotary's Gloria Zlaket worked tirelessly to source over 50 titles sought by the school's twenty four classroom and four special education teachers. This effort and funding from the Rincon Rotary's Rotary LOCAL program enables these educators to use necessary resources without reaching into their own pockets to fund them.
Rincon Rotary's support is part of its Rotary LOCAL program, whose mission is to help improve the local community through educational outreach. Rotary LOCAL can provide manpower, resources from local business partners, or in some cases, direct financial support to teachers who apply for assistance.
To find out more about Rotary LOCAL and how it may be able to help you, go to rotarylocal.org. Primary support for Rotary LOCAL comes from the Rincon Rotary's annual fundraiser, The Tucson Taste of Chocolate.
