Weekly News Update
August 2, 2006    

Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

 Reading to Kids is delighted to welcome Sarah Kolterman as our new Program Coordinator!  Sarah graduated from UCLA this past June with a degree in Psychology and minors in English and Education.  While at UCLA, Sarah co-directed Bruin Partners, a one-on-one tutoring/mentoring program, organizing volunteers and supervising staffing and program implementation.  

Some of you may already know Sarah as a Magnolia volunteer!  Sarah has volunteered as a reader and GLC at Magnolia since October 2004.  Needless to say, her volunteer recruitment and program management skills fit perfectly with what we do at Reading to Kids.  Sarah can be reached at Sarah.Kolterman@readingtokids.org

Welcome, Sarah!

AUGUST READING CLUBS

Click here to sign up for our August reading clubs.  Next Saturday, August 12th, is quickly approaching, and we still have a few spots to fill at Gratts and Hoover!   

The theme for this month's books is "Feelings and Emotions."  First grade will be reading Crow Boy by Taro Yashima, second grade will be reading My Name is Yoon by Helen Recovits, and fourth grade will enjoy My name is Mar'a Isabel by Alma Flor Ada.  For a complete list of this month's books and some excellent discussion and craft ideas to go along with them, please click here. 

 JOIN READING TO KIDS AT DODGER STADIUM!

Remember how much fun you had last year watching the Dodgers with Reading to Kids?  It's that time again--Reading to Kids has free tickets to offer our volunteers! 

All volunteers attending the August Reading Clubs will be offered a pair of tickets to the Monday, August 14th Dodger game versus the Florida Marlins (7:10pm).  Save the date!

We extend our thanks to the Dodgers for recognizing the valuable contributions of our dedicated volunteers!

Have a great week!
