Georgetown — October 6, 2008: Two members of the 12-member Laureate Epsilon Chapter 08 of Beta Sigma Phi Sorority of Seaford delivered boxes of books and read to students of First Steps/Primeros Pasos Early Learning Center in Georgetown.
First Steps/Primeros Pasos Early Childhood Learning Center is primarily geared to three- and four-year-olds who will enter public school in one or two years. The Faculty is bilingual in English and Spanish and all learning activities are conducted in both languages. The curriculum emphasizes fluent English and Spanish language skills, pre-reading, including alphabet recognition, elementary counting, color and shape recognition, and classroom behavior.
Beta Sigma Phi, founded in 1931 to provide young women with culture and social activity, has grown into an international organization encouraging members to help others. “In addition to social activities and providing an appreciation and enjoyment of the liberal arts, our sorority has become an enriching and intensifying inspirational experience,” explains Ginny Wright of Georgetown, one of the women delivering books for the children at the Early Learning Center. “Although Beta Sigma Phi is not a service organization, all our members are generous and in return, have experienced the joy of helping others,” Mrs. Wright concludes.
