The Great Start Collaborative of Menominee County received two grants from the Youth Advisory Committee of the M&M Area Community Foundation. They awarded Great Start $500 to support literacy programs throughout Menominee County and $2,500 to help with the construction of a play area at the Menominee County Intermediate School District.

One of the state directed outcomes the Collaborative focuses on is helping Menominee County students become proficient readers by the end of third grade. The Collaborative’s Early Literacy Council partners with Spies Public Library and the Menominee County Library. The play area will serve the children who utilize the ISD services or for the public visiting the ISD.
