Hey Everyone, Jordan and I are participating in the CHAFE 150 this year along with his family. The CHAFE 150 ride continues its legacy of support for education in the greater Sandpoint, ID community, named “#3 Charity Ride in the USA” by Bicycling Magazine! In the past six years, CHAFE has helped support autism programs by contributing more than $260,000 to our schools. This year, CHAFE proceeds will benefit the Lake Pend Oreille School District’s Literacy Initiative and after school reading programs. Funds will support this initiative by helping fund a literacy curriculum, staff development, and expand after-school programs. This promotes the LPOSD vision of providing high quality instruction and high levels of learning for every child, every day, in every classroom and environment.
In the spring of 2018 just half of LPOSD third-graders were proficient readers; and in the fall of 2018, only 46 percent of LPOSD kindergartners started school with the literacy skills they need to be successful students.
CHAFE’s support will assist the community by helping to increase student achievement in literacy, foster students’ love of reading, increase staff training in teaching literacy, provide safe, supportive after-school programs for students, and increase community outreach and targeted literacy events. A portion of CHAFE proceeds also support Rotary community programs.
