- What day of the week and time might you be able to come?
- Do you know anyone else who has time and loves working with children?
Please help spread the word to family, friends, and neighbors. They will need to be screened through the district raptor program before they can start. Have them get in touch with me or call the school. Follow the link below to access the Volunteer Sign Up.
Yesterday my dad visited the class for a couple hours and had a wonderful time working with the children. He managed to get EVERY student to take a Reading Counts quiz. with a high degree of success. 20/22 students passed their quiz. The kids loved the personal attention. Positive experiences like this help foster a love of learning.
Each week students should take at least two Reading Counts quizzes. When your child brings home library books, make a special effort to read and discuss the ones that have a blue dot on the spine so they can be successful taking the quiz.
How can volunteers help?
- Working with Children- In addition to classroom instruction, there are several programs at school that provide practice and support for reading. A reading group alone is not enough to promote solid reading development. Children need to be read to and read with and listened to when they read. Volunteers are needed to run these other programs on a regular basis so children get practice they need. With regular volunteers students get frequent practice through repeated readings and time in text.
- Clerical Tasks- Checking work, Sorting papers, stapling, cutting, book iventory, etc.
I like to establish a regular day & time for volunteers and meet with them to go over things before they start. Let me know when you can help by going to the Volunteer Sign Up.
Thank you for your help. We can't wait to see you!
