You might want to be part of the Literacy Initiative. This is a program started last year in which volunteers work with a kindergarten student and a first grader – one half hour each – to bolster their literacy skills and foster a love of reading. Books and activity packets are provided. Activities include learning the alphabet, recognizing sight words, rhyming words, and lots more. Literacy days and times are Monday – Thursday, 9:20-10:45 a.m. and Wednesday 2:00-3:10 p.m.

Following are requests for help from individual teachers. In most cases day and time will be decided by the teacher and the volunteer. Those listed first are more specific.
