Dr. Seuss Party & Book Collection

Dear Piedmont Pi Phis,

Again this year we will be collecting chapter books for the children at the Salvation Army's Boys' and Girls' Club. Each child attending our Dr. Seuss party will be given a chapter book to take home. The tentative date of the party is Friday, February 26, 2010, but we need to be collecting books at every meeting. I have attached a list of chapter books to get you started. Lara Heberle and Rae Lynn Wahl are in charge of the party this year.

Did you know:
30 million adults and millions more children in this country are illiterate.
40% of the 4th graders in this country lack basic proficiency in reading.
School drop-outs earn less than 1/3 of the earnings of a college graduate.
Health costs for those without a high school degree are four times higher.
One fourth of those dropping out of school receive government assistance.
80% of prisoners did not finish high school.
Illiterate women are more likely to be in an abusive relationship.
(Resource: Pi Beta Phi Passion for Literacy, A Pi Phi Call to Action DVD)

We can make a difference.

We'll see you at our first meeting at Rae Lynn Wahl's house on Thursday, October 8 at 7 pm.

Fanny K. Stein series for ages 7 – 10.

Founders' Day Food, Cake, & Ceremony/Game Ideas!

I wanted to remind everyone to let Anne ( know by April 17th what you will be bringing to the Founders' Day dinner.

Since we may need a big cake to accommodate a large crowd, we should probably order a cake from either Sam's Club or Costco. If you have a membership and can order and bring the cake to the party, let me know. (We'll reimburse you... so keep the receipt!)

Ceremony/Game Ideas:
If anyone has any fun Founder's Day ceremony and/or game ideas, let our Ritual's chair, Rae Lynn Wahl ( know... I'm sure she would love some help with the planning.

Again, the date, time and place are as follows:

Sunday, April 26th, 4pm:
Lynette Prosser's Home
5908 Autumn Gate Dr
Oak Ridge, 27310
Ph# 336.643.8549

2009 Fraternity Day of Service.... Dr. Seuss Party!!

On February 27, the Piedmont Pi Beta Phi Alumnae Club and the NC Gamma Pi Phis celebrated our 2009 Fraternity Day of Service by hosting a Dr. Seuss Party for children 6 - 8 years old from the Salvation Army’s Boys’ and Girls’ Club in Greensboro, NC. We decorated bookplates as Tieg, one of the WFU Pi Phis, read GREEN EGGS AND HAM, the first book she had ever read by herself. Our refreshments were green deviled eggs and ham rolls, along with a six layer "Cat in the Hat" cake and fish cookies. Then the children enjoyed playing games based on Dr. Seuss' books (Pin the Hat on the Cat, 1 Fish 2 Fish Bowl Toss and a Sneetch Beach Ball Game). At the end of the party, each child received a First Chapter Book to take home. They each also received a coloring book and a box of crayons and a bookplate, that they had decorated, for their own new book.

A note about our National Day of Service "Dr. Seuss" Party

Pi Phis,

Please bring to the Beaux and Arrow at Julie Clark’s on February 8th a First Chapter Book for the children at the Salvation Army’s Boys’ and Girls’ Club.

For our National Day of Service on Friday, February 27, 2009, we are going to have our Dr. Seuss party at the Salvation Army Corps' Worship Center (located at 821 South Aycock Street) at 3 pm. Our goal is to give each child attending a book to take home. A critical factor in whether or not a child becomes a reader is access to books in the home.

I shopped for First Chapter Books at BOOK.A.MILLION. Series include: Fanny K. Stein for ages 7 – 10 ($4.99); Cam Jansen for ages 7 and up ($3.99); Junie B. Jones, reading level 2.1 – 2.7 ($4.99); Magic Tree House, reading level 2.2 and up ($3.99); books by J.C. Greenburg for reading level 2 – 3.2 ($3.99) and by Dan Gutman for 7 – 10 years ($3.99). The Intermediate Series include books by Beverly Cleary for ages 8 – 12 and by Geronimo Stilton for reading level 3, and The Secrets of Droon reading level 3, Beast Quest reading level 3, Captain Underpants for 7 – 10 years, Ricky Ricotta and Encyclopedia Brown for ages 7 and up. These are a few recommended as popular by a lady working there.

If you can’t make the dinner on the 8th, books can be dropped off at my house – 3525 Spicebush Trail. They can be left on a bench in my carport by the back door.

Thank you so much for your support.
