Pen Pals

We’re starting two pen pal programs!

Elementary students can connect with Hamilton College students through letter writing. Practice important literacy skills, learn how to write a letter, and make a new friend!

High school students will exchange letters with senior citizens and can earn community service hours in the process.

Contact us for more information if you’re interested in either program!


Read Around The Calendar

Throughout the month of August 2020, we had volunteers read the first chapter of a classic book and then posted the video on our YouTube channel.

Choose a video then sit back, relax, and listen to a story.
