Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Word must have gotten out about our August 9th "Arts and Entertainment" Reading Clubs because they are already full!

If you are still interested in volunteering at the August Reading Clubs, please check back on our website for openings due to cancellations.

If you are signed up but know you can't join us after all, please cancel so that someone else may take your place.

Our August Reading Clubs are extra special because every child receives a movie poster, we give away other fun prizes, and one lucky student at each school wins a refurbished computer!


With the beginning of the 2014-15 school year next month, from now through Sept. 19th we'll have more than a dozen opportunities to publicize Reading to Kids at our partner schools.   To do that, we need your help as a Reading to Kids Ambassador. 

There are three different ways you can help out: Kindergarten Orientations, Teacher Breakfast Deliveries, and Back-to-School-Nights.

We'll supply everything you need, including what to say at the Kindergarten Orientations. Although it's great if you can speak Spanish (even a little), all of our parent materials are bilingual, and there's always someone who can translate for you at the school.

These events set the course for the rest of the year and are a wonderful way to interact with the kids and their parents, as well as to honor the teachers. The more we publicize at the beginning of the school year, the more children and families we'll serve all year.

Please reply to this email or call the office if you want to know more about being an Ambassador and the schedule of events.  



At Reading to Kids we are all about inspiring children with a love of reading, and your enthusiasm and the books we give away are how we do that.

This year we are once again delighted to have the support of the Ella Fitzgerald Charitable Foundation! For the second year in a row they will donate to us 4,000 books to give away to children! These books will have this special sticker inside:

Ella Fitzgerald Charitable Foundation sticker

For a wonderful overview of Ella Fitzgerald's life, music, and charitable work, please visit her foundation's page and the official Ella Fitzgerald Facebook fan page. You'll soon be humming a tune with a smile on your face!


Thank you volunteers, and we look forward to seeing you in August!
