Welcome Back KDP Members!

We hope you had a great winter break! We are excited for all the amazing opportunities that are planned for this semester.

SO: Polar Plunge

Calling all KDP members! We have a very exciting service opportunity for KDP members! This year, KDP will be participating in the Coulee Region Polar Plunge. The event helps raise money for Wisconsin Special Olympics. This event is something that is close to all educators and we are excited to be involved!

Whether you are ready to take the plunge or would just like to stand on the sideline, please follow the link below to register for the KDP team. To learn more about the event, please refer to the link listed below!

Please, please consider this service opportunity! It is a great way for KDP to show their support for the Special Olympics. We want to put our best foot forward and show up with a great deal of supporters.

Literacy Alive Prep

Literacy Alive Prep is one of our biggest events of the year! We need as much help as possible to prepare for this event. So, we are asking for your VOLUNTEERED time to help us out! We want this event to run as smoothly as possible, so please consider helping us out on Monday, February 8th at 7:15pm. The room is still TBA. We will e-mail with further information.

SO: Literacy Alive

Literacy Alive is one of KDP's biggest service opportunities. KDP members partner up with a fellow member to select age-appropriate book and develop a short activity that relates to the story. Members will then work with groups of children at the event to read the book and implement the activity. The event will take place on Saturday, February 23rd at 10:00am at the La Crosse Main Library. More information will be available as the event approaches!

Giving Tree

A "Giving Tree" has been placed inside room 335 Morris from 7:30-4:30pm daily. Please stop by and drop off new or gently used children's books. These books will go towards a donation at our upcoming Literacy Alive event. Your donations will make sure that every child who attends the event will be able to receive a book. So, please help out!

Executive Team Elections

The time has come for KDP Executive Team Elections! All of the Executive positions will be up next year. Being a KDP Executive is a great opportunity and looks awesome on anyone's resume.
