Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
Oh, what "Back to School Fun" we had! At this past Saturday's reading clubs 1,267 kids, 440 volunteers,
204 parents, and 25 teachers & staff
helped to make our September 13th reading clubs the second largest September we have ever had!
Thanks to the generosity of our volunteers, we also gave away school supplies to every child in attendance!
On Saturday, October 11th we expect bigger clubs with
even more kids! Please
click here to sign up, and encourage a friend or two to volunteer with you as we explore "Halloween, Magic, and Monsters."
October is always one of our most popular reading clubs of the year,
so we will need hundreds more volunteers! After you sign up,
please join our October 11th Facebook Event.
For added magic, we'll have
magicians performing at each of our seven schools!
We also encourage everyone to wear fun, school-appropriate
Please also take a moment to read the
guest blog post from volunteer Selina Vazquez!
