VOLUNTEERS NEEDED THIS SATURDAY!



January 10th Reading Clubs

Please help Reading to Kids start off the New Year with a bang!  Come to this Saturday, January 10th's Reading Clubs -- sign up by clicking here

Due to the winter holiday break (is it over already?) and the college and university winter breaks, we are running low on volunteers for the year's first Reading Clubs -- please come out for a fun-filled day this Saturday!



Books and Crafts!

We've got a great selection of books for these diversity-themed clubs.  For a list of teacher-selected books with links to craft ideas from our Curriculum Committee, please click here!



R2K Community

Did you know that 98% of our participating children (at all schools!) are Hispanic, and that 84% are English language learners? Further, 91% are from low-income households. 

For these reasons, R2K Reading Clubs make a "tremendous, tremendous difference in these kids" according to Juan Gonzalez, Assistant Principal extraordinaire at Esperanza Elementary.  He told me this afternoon that just knowing people in the community care about them and their education makes a big difference to the children at his school, who are "so grateful".

Contribute to the health and life of your community: come and join us on Saturday!

All the best for 2004!
