Our "Fantasy, Folklore, and Fairytales" Reading Clubs are this Saturday and
we need your help in recruiting 43 more volunteers, especially at Politi, Gratts, and White!
These are the last big reading clubs before the kids go on summer vacation and we want to make sure they have a fun and meaningful time.
If you have not already done so, please visit our
website now and sign up.
Please also encourage your friends, co-workers and family to sign up by asking them to join you at your school. You can do that by sharing our
Facebook event and guiding them to also sign up on our website.
If you use Facebook or Twitter, please
post that we need more volunteers. We've provided a sample post below, but in whatever you post please be sure to include the following two things:

FREE POLITI CONSERVATION ART SHOW TOMORROW
Tomorrow, May 9th, from 4:30–7:30 p.m. you are invited to celebrate the fifth year of the
Conservation Art Show at Politi Elementary School! This event showcases the science illustration and habitat restoration work that students at both Politi Elementary and Dorsey High School have worked on throughout the school year.
There will be lots of hands-on activities for the whole family, including paper-making, tours of the schoolyard habitat, and art/science projects in which to participate. This year, the Politi Science Illustrators' ambitious studies had them thinking like architects and exploring patterns in nature, from the spots on a leopard's coat to animal courtship displays to how ocean tides work.
Thanks, and we hope to see you this Saturday!
