Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
On October 11th, we welcomed 1,440 children, 511 volunteers, and 338 parents to our our "Halloween, Mysteries & Magic" reading clubs. This month we broke the record for number of volunteers AND number of parents at the reading clubs, and we had the second largest student attendance in Reading to Kids history! Thanks to all of our volunteer readers who helped make this month a success!
A special thanks to our volunteer magicians, especially Raul Fernandez for helping to coordinate the magicians at each school!
