A Message From The Director
2004 - 2015
On June 30, 2015,The Bright Stars Reading Club and Enrichment Center closed its doors. I have had loads of fun reading and learning with all of the " Bright Stars" over the last 11 years. I would like to sincerely thank EVERYONE for your awesome support as we helped 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders develop and maintain a love and interest for reading in a fun and informal setting during those early Saturday mornings. I am also very appreciative of ALL of our wonderful parents, "Star"velous college-bound volunteers, our fabulous assistant director, generous financial supporters, kind friends, great family members, and dedicated Board members who have supported us in so many ways.
Our mission of promoting literacy awareness in the community will continue in a "wall-less" fashion, so please check our website on a regular basis for upcoming events. In the meantime, let's keep our "Bright Stars" reading EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!
"Reading is the key to a child's SUCCESS in school and in life."
They say," When one door closes, another one opens", so please support the Urban Scholar Athletes Saturday Academy . They will offer their enrichment program at our old location. Reading, Math, Science, and so much more will be offered for 1st - 7th graders. I invite you to visit their website for more details. www.urbanscholarathletes.org. Let them know I sent you their way.
A Million Thanks,

the fact that he is anxious to read". Parent of a First

winning prizes, and meeting the guests that are invited to the reading
club". Parent of a Second Grader

her to read on her own without having to be told to read".
