Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

It's the last day of February, and our March 9th reading clubs are nearly full, so submit your RSVP today!

You'll get to read to the kids and enjoy the musical performances at each school!

We still need GLCs, Training Coordinators, Food or Bagel Runners, and Site Coordinators at several of our schools.

If you have volunteered with us at least a couple of times and can help in any of these roles, please email us at info@readingtokids.org.

We can even add you in for one of those roles if your school is full, especially if you can be a Site Coordinator!

(If you have signed up for the March reading clubs but can't make it after all, please go here to cancel to open your spot to someone else.)
