Altrusa gives Passage Charter students a head-start on literacy for their babies

Early literacy research indicates that one of the best ways to ensure young children become competent readers and writers is to get books into their hands. As a way of supporting this effort in our community, Altrusa International of Montrose recently gave each student attending Passage Charter School a selection of board books as a beginning library for the babies of these young women. This gift was given with the hope that it will empower young mothers to read early and often to their children as they grow.
