2020-2021 Services

As we are not available to offer our in-person services in Morgan Library, we have transitioned to offering the following services:

  • Activity Kits: With children not being able to be in the classroom, it is a lot harder to plan fun activities and have all of the supplies to showcase their creativity. This is why RKV has created weekly activity bags available for pick-up with pre-planned crafts and the supplies needed to make them!
  • Reading Rams: RKV is now a Scholastic FACE partner, allowing us to provide books to families to build their home library. Families can request one Reading Rams Kit per child and they will receive a brand new book, a DIY bookmark kit, a reading log and coloring pages that correlate with their book, and four activities to go along with the book (all supplies included to complete the activities).
  • Mindful Monday & Wisdom Wednesday Tips: Parenting isn’t always easy, and we acknowledge that. Mindful Monday & Wisdom Wednesday are opportunities to reflect on parenting skills. This information can be found on our social media, so give us a follow!
  • Virtual Parent Resource Fair: RKV partnered with different CSU and Fort Collins community partners that student parents can utilize! Check out the ALVS Student Parent landing page and all of these awesome resources!
