Schools Chancellor at P.S. 188 This Morning to Promote Reading Program

A bit last minute, but here’s a news advisory concerning an event taking place later this morning:

Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott will join of Reading Partners CEO Michael Lombardo at PS 188 (442 East Houston) on the Lower East Side at 11:45 am on Wednesday, September 21st, to highlight the volunteer-driven early-intervention literacy program’s success in redirecting troubled readers towards the path to academic success.
