On Tuesday, June 8, members of the Streamwood Park District joined forces with Alignment Collaborative for Education for Learning On the Go.

After the success of the inaugural program in 2020, which was held at Kiddie Corner Park, 2021's edition was moved to a larger, more drive-up friendly location at Parkwood Elementary in Hanover Park.

 

Children ages 5 and younger, along with their parents, are invited to join the weekly event for storytime and a parent/child activity. A free grab-n-go lunch, sponsored by School District U-46, will be provided for the children. Learning on the Go takes place from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. every Tuesday through July 27 at Parkwood Elementary School, 2150 Laurel Ave., in Hanover Park.

On June 8, 98 boxes of food, equivalent to feeding 490 children, were distributed. There are 35 children participating in the summer reading program.

"It is great to see so many community agencies come together during the summer to encourage families to learn together, read together, and have fun together," said Lisa Fabris, Children Services assistant manager at Poplar Creek Library.

For information on the Learning On the Go program, contact Alignment Collaborative for Education Executive Director Nancy Coleman at (224) 227-7534 or colemannace@align4edu.org.

The Streamwood Park District serves more than 40,000 Streamwood residents, offering hundreds of seasonal programs. Ranging from fitness, aquatics, youth and adult athletics, the Streamwood Park District strives to accommodate the diverse Streamwood community on a daily basis with a multitude of programs, events, and classes.

The Streamwood Park District has been serving the Streamwood community since 1966.
