We are particularly in need of volunteers to be Grade Level Coordinators, Training Coordinators, Check-in Helpers, and
Food Runners. Please e-mail
firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to step into any of these important roles.
We also have an update for those of you wishing to help celebrate the life of

Celebration of Life in Andreia's honor.
Anyone is welcome to stop in at any time that afternoon, and it will be held at Pip's Club, on the second floor at 8480 Beverly Blvd #201, Los Angeles, CA 90048. There is some $5 parking available, with free street parking, and the Beverly Center is nearby.
BE A READING TO KIDS AMBASSADOR
The new school year starts on August 15th, which means during these next several weeks we are invited to promote Reading to
Kids at our partner schools!
There are three different ways you can help out:
Kindergarten Orientations, Teacher Breakfast Deliveries, and
We'll supply everything you need, including what to say at the Kindergarten Orientations. Although it's great if you can speak Spanish (even a little), all of our parent materials are bilingual, and there's always someone who can translate for you at
These events set the course for the rest of the year and are a wonderful way to interact with the kids, parents, and teachers.
