Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Our April 8th "The Wonders of Science & Technology" reading clubs are this Saturday, and we still have a few available spots!

Kids with crafts at the reading clubs

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:

- Check-in Helper at any school!
- GLC at Alta Loma (4th Grade) or Esperanza (5th 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.)
