Miss Soto Literacy Legacy, “Somebody Loves You Mr. Hatch”

Today the Vicki Soto Memorial Fund, Inc. will deliver 250 copies of the book “Somebody Loves You Mr. Hatch” across our community as part of Miss Soto’s Literary Legacy Project. We had the honor of working with the books’ illustrator to make this all possible. If you have children in the Stratford School District, we encourage you to ask them about the book, Miss Soto Literacy Legacy, and how their class is getting involved!
