Christy Imig, coordinator of the Early Birds program for Norman Public Schools, addressed Sooner Rotary Club Tuesday morning.  Sooner Rotary recently presented a check for $6,600 to Norman Public Schools to sponsor the Early Birds program at Kennedy and Wilson elementary schools. The gift was a part of the club's celebration of its 25th anniversary.

     The Early Birds program is family-based school readiness program for parents of pre-schoolers to help insure that the children will enter school "safe, healthy, eager to learn and ready to succeed," Imig said.
