Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Oh, the fun we had last Saturday, when 931 kids, 413 volunteers, 118 parents, and 26 teachers & staff joined together for our Friendship & Family clubs!

Our "Music & Celebration" reading clubs are coming up on March 11th, where we will have musical performances at each school!

RSVP for our March reading clubs here, and please also take a moment to join our March 11th Facebook event. Your friends will be able to see that you're attending the reading clubs, and you can help spread the word by inviting them to join, too.
