A few weeks ago Woodland Star received the great news that our school was accepted into the United Way’s Schools of Hope program. This program is an early grades reading initiative focused on providing reading support and tutoring to qualifying students in grades 2-4. Our goal is to strengthen the student’s reading abilities and support the class teacher’s work in bringing the students to reading proficiency. If a child cannot read, they cannot succeed and early intervention is the best way to support a student’s on-going academic success. Schools of Hope is a volunteer program and as such we are seeking community members who would like to volunteer to work with our students in weekly tutoring sessions. The minimum commitment is 30 minutes per week. Volunteers do not need to be teachers or members of our community. We will provide the training and United Way will provide background checks and volunteer clearance. Below are links where you can find out more information about how to volunteer and FAQ’s about the volunteer role. Feel free to pass this information and invitation on to anyone that you feel might enjoy being part of a child’s success story. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me. Grandparents and retired persons are especially encouraged to apply!
