PHILIPSBURG - The Reading Rainbow pre - school recently received some educational books and computers for their foundation with the assistance from the SMTA’s $ A Day program.
The day care /pre-school and after school service foundation caters to approximately 50 children from the ages of 0 to 13 years old. Besides the regular afterschool programs the school is heavily involved in teaching their students about geography and agriculture.
The kids are growing their own vegetables and botanical gardens and planting fruit trees. Also, along with their Dutch lessons, the kids often have speech contests, and poetry classes.
The Reading Rainbow foundation teaches their kids the fundamentals of reading different educational books in order for them to excel academically.
“We as an association is honored to be a part of the educational growth of our youths and that we are able to provide the tools that they need to develop all of their skills that they will need for their future” said Arnaldo Philippa, SMTA Board Member and General Manager of Diamond Flamingo Resort.
The SMTA’s successful $ A Day program has been assisting many foundations and associations with their educational and environmental programs, and this program is made possible from the numerous generous tourists who visit our beautiful timeshare resorts every year. These guests voluntarily give $1 every day that they stay on the island, and the SMTA is honored to display in many ways the benefits of their contribution. (SMTA)
