It was an AWESOME experience being with the kids at Parker Elementary in Clinton Township!!!!! Single Family Living (SFL) is kicking-off their "Reading Heroes" program, which helps K-12 students one-on-one with overcoming reading challenges. In addition, SFL provided FREE books....YES FREE....books to children in schools needing the most help. SFL is combating illiteracy one child at a time! Single Family Living sponsored the ULTIMATE SPELLING BEE contest at Parker Elementary! The Grand Prize was $500 Gardner White Voucher!!! The (7) students from each grade won backpacks filled with $10 McDonald Gift Cards, Scrabble Jr. Games, Frisbees, and more! Children from K-6 at Parker Elementary participated for a chance to win but only (1) student won Grand Prize and (6) super happy Runner-ups!
On June 11, 2018, the winners was announced by Mrs. Shannon King, Principal and Mrs. Stephanie Krycian , Reading Director (far right in picture above) of Robbie Hall Parker Elementary!

The giving did not STOP with the $500 Gardner White Furniture Voucher on June 11th! Single Family Living gave NEW Books to the 2nd & 3rd Graders at Parker Elementary in preparation for the summer months that the kids are out of school.
