Readiness children raise money for the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation

Readiness Class E at their Lemonade stand 

The children of our Readiness Program Class E had a lemonade stand this summer to raise for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) is a national childhood cancer foundation dedicated to raising funds for research into new treatments and cures for all children battling cancer.

The children learned how to handle money, use a cash register and interact with customers. . It was a great learning experience for the children.

The NYISE’s Readiness Program provides special education services to children ages 3-5. Students who have been identified as a preschooler with a disability and have a recommendation for special education are placed in the program through their local Committee on Preschool Special Education.
