Scrabble Night in Canada Update
Excerpts from a recent e-mail:
The last tiles have been counted, and the final score has been tallied. The SCRABBLE® Night in Canada Friends and Family Challenge raised approximately $20,000 in support of Frontier Colleges Literacy outreach activities!
The statistics are staggering:
- 42% of adult Canadians have trouble using reading and writing to participate in everyday life!
- Perhaps more shocking, 18% of grade 10 students in Ontario failed the mandatory literacy test last year.
With sincere thanks,
PS. Cant wait for February to have another SCRABBLE® party? Our online fundraising tool is available to you all year long, so set up a summer SCRABBLE® party and help Frontier College spread literacy across Canada one word, one tile and one person at a time.
