ADULT READING VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!
The “Book Partners Program” will soon begin at Perry Elementary School. This program is after school, with second graders in need of extra practice reading. The program is coordinated through Looking Glass Community Services and funded through generous donations from the Detroit Conference Board of Discipleship, the West Michigan Conference Board of Discipleship, the Greater Perry Lions’ Club, and the Perry Masons. (This is a separate program from the Perry Elementary's Rev Up program.)
Volunteer adult mentors are needed to enjoy time with a student one-on-one, and to focus on practicing and expanding the student's reading skills. All learning materials will be provided and are self-explanatory and easy to use.
Bookpartners meet most Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 3:00-4:00 P.M, from October 25 to December 15, and will resume from February to April. We welcome volunteers for either or both days, or as substitutes for our regular volunteers.
There will be a training session on Tuesday, October 11, at 3:00 P.M., in the Perry Elementary Library. Volunteers will be required to complete and pass a Volunteer Background Check, per the school district’s policy.
