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 Mrs. Tomkins’ kindergarten classroom Monday, April 10th from 9:00 am-10:00 am. We hope that you will consider partnering with us on this. Please let Mrs. Tomkins email@example.com know by Thursday, April 6th if you can come to the training session.
