Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
This past Saturday 403 volunteers read to 867 kids, while
92 parents and 28 teachers & staff
joined us for our "Good Friends" clubs!
"Music & Celebration" reading clubs next month are on
March 10th, where we will have
musical performances at each school!
We still need a few more musicians, so if you or someone you know can share the gift of music on the 10th, please contact us at
RSVP for our March reading clubs here, and please also take a moment to join our March 10th Facebook event. Your friends will be able to see that you're attending the reading clubs, and you can help spread the word by inviting them to join, too.
