Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Join Reading to Kids for our "College Spirit Day" reading clubs on Saturday, November 8th.  Click here to sign up.

Show your college spirit at the November reading clubs.  Wear your school colors, show your pride, and celebrate higher education!  The school represented by the most volunteers will be crowned the grand champion of the 2008 Reading to Kids college face-off and earn bragging rights for the year!  But most importantly, the kids will see the volunteers' school pride and the value of a college education.

For most of the kids who attend the reading clubs, if they go to college, they will be the first in their families to do so. Exposure to college students and alumni is a great way to get kids thinking about their academic futures, so show your school pride and make a positive impact that will last a lifetime!  Click here to sign up.
