Read For The Record 

Join Ranger Good Works as we participate with “Jumpstart’s Read for the Record® reading campaign at Dillard Elementary School on Thursday, October 19, 2017, to be a part of the world’s largest shared reading experience this initiative brings together over 2 million people each year in classrooms, libraries, community centers, and homes across the US. This annual campaign was launched over a decade ago to highlight the importance of building early literacy and language skills for every child so that all children have the opportunity to enter kindergarten prepared to succeed.”

  • Time of the reading event at Dillard Elementary school is from 8:30 am until about 9:30 am
  • Read to Preschool and Kindergarten students

This year’s Read for the Record book is Quackers, by Liz Wong, a delightful story about a kitten who grows up believing he’s a duck, until the day he meets another kitten. What follows is a sweet tale about understanding, acceptance, and learning it is ok to be whoever you want to be.

We look forward to having you join us for our Read For The Record event.

Career City 2017 was outstanding at Dillard Elementary!

What do 73 Companies x 3 =?  219 Volunteers and Community Partners Showed up to teach students about their industry.

Ranger Good Works, Dillard Elementary teachers, staff, students and I would like to personally give you a ‘heartfelt thanks’ for the support you have given to Career City 2017 to help make it a HUGE success! 

You shared your time and talent with the children to improve their lives by helping build their hopes and dreams for their future. You showed compassion and generosity. You were aware of the need to share your skills and knowledge. Boy oh Boy did you ever!!!  900 times!!!  This was our first “all grades inclusive” attempt and it went just like it did last year. Outstanding!

To quote Martin Luther King, Jr.:   “Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve…. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace.  A soul generated by love. “

We understand that you have many obligations and Ranger Good Works appreciates your being in attendance. Without you, our City would not be complete.

WE look forward to seeing you next year for our Career City 2018.

Thank you, Victoria Ranger

Hour of Code at Dillard Elementary December 2016

HOUR OF CODE – December 2016 

For the 4th year in a row, Ranger Good Works had an outstanding team show up to Volunteer with us for the Computer Science Education Week and CODE.ORG Hour of Code initiative held at Dillard Elementary School.

Over 800 k-5 students participated in both “Unplugged” (paper activities and commanding people to move like robots) and computer “Plugged” coding programs on their tech devices. The students and volunteers didn’t want to stop after the sounding of the bell for everyone to end their session. One eager and talented coder stated, “I have been waiting all year for The Hour of Code and was dreaming about this day since we did it last year.”  Volunteers walked out of the session proudly wearing a #BrowardCodes sticker to show their participation in a wonderfully productive and fulfilling coding event.

Thank you to everyone who supports Ranger Good Works in our effort to give the students at Dillard Elementary the 3 T’s. Time Talent Treasure!

Our Partners included Dillard Elementary Staff, Ranger Technical Resources, Van Dutch, Vocabulary/Spelling City, Wells Fargo, Safety Guys, Broward County Clerk of Courts, Giant Titan, Yachting Today, Casbah Spa and several others amazing volunteers.  Click here to see photos from the Hour of Code.
