Women’s Leadership Council Volunteer at Beach Elementary School in Round Lake Beach
Volunteers from the Women’s Leadership Council spent time on Thursday, July 16, 2015 at Beach Elementary School in Round Lake Beach for a Day of Caring project, coordinated by United Way of Lake County. This project included re-enhancing an existing Early Learning Trail. The Women’s Leadership Council sponsored the signs, paint and supplies that were needed for the completion of this project.
United Way of Lake County’s Success By 6 Program provides children with the core skills needed in school to ensure a healthy start. One of the initiatives of this program is the Early Learning Trails. ELTs are publicly accessible outdoor games at schools and parks focused on developing school readiness skills. They are brightly painted paths marked by numbers 1 through 10, letters of the alphabet, and shapes.
“United Way of Lake County has been a true supporter of the Round Lake Area community and school district for many years. Their work has brought countless partners to the district to provide special enhancements such as the Early Learning Trail, school and playground beautification, school supplies, celebrity readers, a major fitness room renovation, and even more to the students of RLAS-116. I cannot begin to explain the impact that they have made in this district. It is overwhelming. We are truly thankful to United Way of Lake County and all of the volunteers that have spent time in our district”, stated Superintendent Collins.
