Be a wee read volunteer!
We would like to thank all our wee read volunteers that read with our kindergarten and grade one students. Thank you for bringing the joy of reading to our young students! You were such a benefit to the teachers and students and we are thankful for you and the time you devoted to this wonderful program.
Be a wee read volunteer!
We are looking for volunteers who can come to the school for about 30 minutes, once a week, for eight consecutive weeks to read with two children, talk about books, and play games that support literacy skills. This eight-week program was designed by Alberta Reads (www.albertareadsnetwork.com) to help Kindergarten and Grade One children strengthen the foundations for reading and school success, and help children develop a love for books.
If you are interested in being part of this fun and meaningful opportunity, or know of someone who might be, there will be a volunteer training session held in the library on Monday, January 29th from 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm. We hope that you will consider partnering with us on this. Please let Tracy Russell (firstname.lastname@example.org) know by Friday, January 26th if you would like to volunteer and will be at the training session.
