PAKRAT – News & History
On Wednesday, August 2, the Partners And Kids Reading A-lot Together (PAKRAT) program, funded through the Local Education & Activities Foundation (LEAF), finished another successful summer of bringing quality literature to the children of District 7 42 and the St. Cloud area!
We had hoped to return in 2021 to an in-person event at Café Renaissance with all of our friends and supporters, but out of an abundance of caution we have decided a virtual event is the best decision for this year. We will therefore celebrate our 11th Annual LEAF Learning Renaissance online much as we did last year. This year’s event will run from Monday, October 4 through Monday, October 18.

The Kiwanis Club recently donated $1,500 to LEAF. The Club donated $500 of their gift to support the PAKRAT summer bus program. As part of the Kiwanis 100th Anniversary Celebration, $1,000 was donated to the Adopt a Classroom program to be split between four classrooms (100 students). One classroom will be at Lincoln, one at Madison and two at Talahi Elementary. Over the years, the Kiwanis Club has been very supportive of LEAF programs. Thanks Kiwanis!!
