    Derry Area announces a Welcome Baby Package as a part of its continuing Early Childhood Literacy Program.  The Welcome Baby Package is for families of newborns who reside in the Derry Area School District.  Families complete a postcard from a display found at the local pediatrician’s office and return it to the district.  Upon receiving the postcard, the district sends a free Welcome Baby Package to the family.  The package contains information about the DASD, highlighting the Early Childhood and Kindergarten Readiness tabs on the DASD website (https://www.dasd.us/) and includes the Building Blocks for Babies resource for parents of children ages birth to age three, as well as a soft baby book and an adorable Tiny Trojan bib.
