SAMS Read Across America Collage


Saint Francis  Student-Athlete Mentors (SAMs) hosted Read Across America Week last week with the Penn Cambria School District and the Saint Michael School in Loretto.  Our SAMs, along with other SFU student-athletes, attended 5 schools in 4 days. Penn Cambria Middle School, Intermediate School, Primary School, Pre-Primary School, and St. Mike's in Loretto!   
New this year, our student-athletes read three books by author Jon Gordon (The Energy Bus for Kids, The Hard Hat for Kids, & Thank You and Good Night).  All three books shared great messages centered around leadershipgratefulnessovercoming challengesstaying positive, and how to be a great teammate!

Thanks for all of your support and special thanks to those teams/student-athletes that were able to volunteer!
