The Jeanine Nicarico Memorial Fund for Literacy, under the auspices of the Naperville Education Foundation,
supports grants to individual
educators, or entire schools, in an effort to promote a deeper understanding
and teaching of literacy, to enrich instructional
programs, to provide opportunities to link literacy between the
home and the school, and to lay foundations that will develop life-long
readers. The Fund was established in 1996 by friends and family of the Nicaricos, faculty members at River Woods Elementary School
and other staff members of
Naperville Community Unit School District 203.
The "Run for Reading" is now called "G.L.O.W. 5K RUN"!
This year's 5K G.L.O.W. RUN will take place on Saturday, June 6, 2015, 8:00 p.m., starting at 5th Avenue Station.
to the Jeanine Nicarico Memorial Fund for Literacy to acquire and distribute resources that provide enriched literacy opportunities
for the learners within the Naperville community. Visit nicaricoliteracyfund.org/glow/index.cfm
