Reading Partners


The Reading Partners programs at Linden Street School and Louis Toffolon Elementary School, recently received a generous donation from the Plainville VFW Madeley Roberts Post 574’s Community Outreach Program.

Madeley Roberts Post 574, which proudly supports veterans, the military and the community, donated 30 books to the Reading Partners program.

Earl Carey, a retired Coast Guard veteran, and member of the VFW, joined both schools and their Reading Partner volunteers for a reading of The Mitten by Assistant Superintendent Dr. Maureen Brummett and Toffolon Elementary School Principal Lynn Logoyke.

Thanks to the VFW donation, each student received a copy of The Mitten in support of literacy and the VFW’s focus on remembering those who have passed, and celebrating the living.
