This year’s Operation Lamb set for Oct. 14-15
This past spring the Knights of Columbus Council #9492 presented a $500 check from proceeds of the Operation Lamb 2010 project to Alison Hamrick and Lynn Lance for the Exceptional Children’s Program in the Tryon Elementary School.
Students from pre-school to fifth grade with intellectual disabilities are in the exceptional children’s program. The students work on phonics, letter and number recognition, sight words, reading comprehension, math skills (including measurement), geometry data analysis and problem solving.
Although the students receive specialized instruction in small group settings, they are educated as much as possible in the regular classroom.
Because of state and federal funding cuts and budget restraints, every donation is used specifically for learning tools and equipment that assist in the child’s development.
Hamrick and Lance said they appreciate the support for the exceptional children program from the Knights of Columbus.
The Knights of Columbus said they look forward to continued support from the community in the 2011 Operation Lamb campaign, which will be held at the Bi-Lo Food stores on Oct. 14 – 15.
