Vincennes University – David Tucker, V.P. Workforce Development & Community Services, Vincennes University  and James Dolan, Director of Logistics, Vincennes University

On Tuesday, May 19th the President of Vincennes University distributed books to kindergarten students at Crooked Creek Elementary School. Vincennes University graciously donated between 3-5 books per kindergarten student in all of Washington Township, in an effort to increase student reading over the summer. M.S.D. Washington Township is excited to be partnering with Vincennes University and First Books. The donated books will help support the ongoing development of our students as proficient readers. Having the books at home for summer supported our kindergarteners as well as their family members by encouraging daily reading practice. To date, they have distributed more than 125 million books and educational resources to programs and schools serving children from low-income families throughout the United States and Canada. Thank you to First Books and Vincennes University for supporting Washington Township students and community in their development as readers.

As part of their Outreach Ministries, St. Luke’s United Methodist Church took part in their Annual Servant Day on July 25, 2015.  This year they added one more Washington Township School to total four elementary schools being supported.  They also completed a project at the Crooked Creek Food Pantry which is located at the Eskenazi Health Center which is within our school district and services many of our families.  Our featured schools this year were Spring Mill (for the first time) and Fox Hill, Greenbriar and Nora.  Volunteers were recruited to help serve at the schools to get them ready for the Back to School Night and the first day of school. Opportunities included inside and outside jobs and ranged from setting up classrooms, making copies, doing bulletin boards, and back to school information packets to the beautification of the outdoor areas.  At the food pantry they cleaned and organized the current supplies.

On August 2nd St. Luke’s supported 1000+ students, the majority of which are from our district a the Back To School Extravaganza which helps our families have the supplies they need for a successful school year.  School supplies, clothing and even haircuts highlighted the special day.  St. Luke’s also welcomed many of our students into their summer programs and camps of which they provided partial and/or full scholarships.
