Wanted: Volunteer Readers!

One of the most important areas of focus district-wide is reading.

Children who are proficient readers have many opportunities for success when compared with non-readers.

Are you available to read to or with a child, or listen to a child read?

Please let us know the times you are available, and we will give you an important role! Thank you!

Please call the office at 481-2000
