Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Our March 11th "Music & Entertainment" reading clubs are this Saturday, and we may need a few more volunteer readers!

We are also back to presenting talented, generous musicians and dancers joining us at each school. Click here to find out who will be performing!

At the moment we may have an available reader spot or two, but if we are full when you check, please keep checking back today and tomorrow for new spots.

Or, if you have read with us at least a few times before, please email us at info@readingtokids.org if you can help in any of these roles:

- Training Coordinator at Gratts
- Check-in Helper at any school!
- GLC at Esperanza, Los Angeles (3rd Grade), Magnolia, or Politi (3rd Grade)
- Site Operations Helper at any school!

(If you have signed up and can't make it after all, please cancel your RSVP online immediately to make room for another volunteer.)
