MAGNOLIA ELEMENTARY NEEDS YOUR HELP
Mr. Reyes, the principal at Magnolia Elementary, has asked for YOUR help this Saturday, May 4th.
Mr. Reyes is looking for 15-20 volunteers to help with kids activities (reading, arts and crafts, playground games) while their parents are participating in workshops. This is a wonderful way to spend even more time with these fantastic students.
The open house is from 8am-noon. Breakfast and lunch will be provided by the school for all of the volunteers. If you can make it (even for an hour or two), please email us back ASAP so we can forward your information on to Mr. Reyes.
Thank you for your support and commitment to the school communities we serve!
THANK YOU CAPITAL GROUP COMPANIES CHARITABLE FOUNDATION
We sincerely thank
The Capital Group Companies Charitable Foundation for their generous $10,000 grant! Once again they have chosen to partner with us in bringing the love of reading to the thousands of children we serve each year, and we treasure their continued support.
We also send a very special thank you to Capital Group employee and Reading to Kids Taskforce member Dalet Brady for helping us earn this funding!
